Graham Smith Illustration

About Graham Smith

I am a freelance illustrator and video maker, collaborating on art projects with talented people, ad agencies, publications, and corporations. I am available for assignments. My work appears in national publications, on products, buildings, advertisements, and TV. 

Illustrations are drawn traditionally, and finished digitally. I use pen and ink, pencils and organic textures to create hand-rendered drawings. Illustrations are finished digitally in Photoshop, and sometimes Illustrator.

Videos are produced in house using Canon DSLR's, Rode Microphones, iPhones, and GoPros. Check out over 100 videos on my Vimeo Channel. or Youtube Chanel
Let's talk about your project. Consultations are free. I am always looking for creative partnerships, and the next art adventure.

The Art Adventure

Welcome to my creative journey! From the bustling streets of New York to the sunny shores of California, my path has been a captivating adventure through the world of art and design.
Starting out in New York, I pursued an illustration career, all while paying my dues at an art supply store. This led me to a dynamic journey in the fashion industry, where I designed thousands of screen prints, eventually rising to the role of Vice President at a textile design studio.

"This guy’s stuff is great. It has a noir-like quality that could’ve come right out of the pulp fiction haydays of the 30’s and 40’s, but it still feels utterly modern. And unlike many graphic novel illustrators today he knows not to overdo it. He let’s us into the eyes or his subjects, shows us their wrinkles, and crooked smiles. He builds the character not through pyrotechnics of color and form, but through human emotion."
