Justin Potts' Profile

About

I've been drawing and painting faces for as long as I can remember. I've always loved seeing who takes shape as a drawing unfolds. I generally approach faces as designs and it seems to me that I've never drawn the same one twice. New characters are always waiting to show up on the page. I decided to start this shop as a place for all of them to hang out together. The funny ones, the serious ones, the physicists and the goddesses. A place where George Bernard Shaw can have a conversation with Mumtaz Mahal while Space Fox and the B-52's sit on a couch in the background listening to Brian Eno music with a Sheherazade lyric. I hope they'll all get along okay...if you hear any yellin' convo me asap!

Please know: I'm always interested in doing custom work and will gladly make face (or other) art for you, so please get in touch if you have a custom request…

More boring stuff about me:

I'm a self-taught, lifelong artist and musician living in Portland, Oregon with my wife and son. I'm inspired by music, DIY culture, nature, science, thought, humor, comics and ART. Things that help amplify the inspiration include: coffee, books, Portlandia, craft beer, The Portland Trailblazers, chocolate and my dog, a highly advanced canine companion.

You can check out my music related art at: artfulmusician.etsy.com

And, my other etsy shop which features my non-face related art: justinpotts.etsy.com

As well as my wife and I's shop featuring handcrafted clocks among other things: infinityarts.etsy.com
