Some say that artist Chris Maynard is slightly feather-obsessed. “It’s true,” he says, “my work with feathers gives me a satisfying perch from which to view the world.” He only has time to turn a small portion of his ideas, which fill many notebooks, into feather designs. His favorite tools are the tiny eye surgery scissors, forceps, and magnifying glasses passed down through his family.

Teagan White is a freelance designer and illustrator from Chicago, currently living and working in St Paul, Minnesota, where she recently earned her BFA in Illustration from the Minneapolis College of Art + Design. Her body of work encompasses intricate renderings of flora and fauna, playful depictions of cute anthropomorphic critters, illustrative typography, and everything in between. The subtleties of nature and reciprocal relationships between organisms are her primary inspirations, and her work typically incorporates flat, limited color, decorative arrangements of organic forms, and obsessive detail.

Jorge Santos paintings are a profound display of picture making for the sheer purposes of formulating an all but transparent narrative via highly technical draftsmanship and paint handling. As a self-taught artist, the evolutionary process of his work is often subject to reconfiguration, repositioning, and refinement until the grand conclusion is met. Narrative is of such importance that even compositional concerns may be subordinate to the inclusion of a necessary motif in the storyline.

Rondle Royce West was born an artist in 1965 and has been one since! “I believe life experiences have helped me become that artist and have inspired much of my work.” Rondle lives in Cincinnati and Palm Springs. The work’s organic form, bold color schemes and various other seductive and unnerving elements are like mini stage performances, telling their own individual stories to each viewer.
