About

About Me

My name is Joseph Bodus. I am a local graphic artist/illustrator from St. Louis, MO. I’ve been creating art ever since I was a kid. I would say that I am not your typical graphic artist. My passion for art was the driving force that led me to further my education and pursue the field of Graphic Design and Illustration. I received my associate degree in Graphic Communication from St. Louis Community College Florissant Valley and my BFA in Illustration from the Kansas City Art Institute. After graduating I moved back to St. Louis. It was shortly after that I found my inspiration. My main focus is pencil drawings of local St. Louis historical buildings, landmarks and sports. I also paint and do digital/computer graphic designs as well.

Several years ago I was laid off from my full time job as a graphic designer when I decided to started doing art shows as a way to create some income until I found new employment. I noticed the amazing response I was getting back from people about my work so I continued to do shows. After some time passed I decided to start a part time art business called (JB Design & Illustration). During that time I got myself in an art gallery and continued to get great feedback. About a year and half went by before I found full-time employment again. I still continued to do art shows as a way to supplement my income. After five and half year of working as a full time graphic/web designer and doing my business part-time I was once again laid off. Because art has always been a passion of mine and my business was growing I decided to take a leap of faith by stepping out and taking my business to the next level. Now that I am full-time with my business I believe in my heart it was the right decision. I love what I do and look forward to seeing where my art can take me.

To follow me you can like me on Facebook at facebook.com/jbdesignillustration. You can also check out my website where you can view all my artwork at jbdesignillustration.etsy.com.
