Michael Schaefer's Profile

~*~ MS Design ~*~

Hi. My name is Michael Schaefer and I'm a freelance graphic designer who also enjoys making artwork. I'm currently in school for my bachelors in graphic design and I also work full time for an internet company.

My style is pretty bold, where I play with shapes and color. I started off making paintings on canvas to decorate my apartment....and I thought "why are some originals so expensive or why are some of the copycats you see at general stores so expensive when they are only replicas?" - I figured it would be easier to then paint something that would be bold and colorful to decorate my apartment. I'm inspired by optical artist Bridget Riley and find the play of colors and lines to be interesting to look at.

Lately I've been branching into new techniques I'm learning such as impasto and also venturing towards more of a natural venture (such as tree art work, etc), but partially with an optical twist.

Most of the canvas I use is the premium canvas where it's not even stapled on the back - and will be noted as such. For those that I did not use a premium canvas, there will be no image reflecting a HQ canvas used. I do not use cheap canvas though, so no staples on the side. I want you to be able to hang it without framing the piece.

Eventually I would like to create graphic packages on the store as well, but more of that to come later.

I also enjoy Music and Pets, aside from artsy things. I have 2 cats, one named Coconut and the other named Dolce (like in Dolce & Gabana). I have a 46 gallon bow front freshwater tank and recently got a crayfish (freshwater lobster) who is pretty neat.

If you need something custom, or have an idea similar to mine but want tweaked in a new way, contact me and I'll be more than happy to work with you and give you a quote.

Below, you'll find information on my website. I tend to update my facebook page more often, so please venture there for new stuff and updates and ideas for future projects in the works.
