Just in time for the New Year, we’ve a special treat for illustration fans: a new Illustrator CC sample art piece, created by Don Clark of Invisible Creature.
Image detail from “Reality Reborn”
From an early love of skateboarding and snowboarding to founding a punk rock band with his brother Ryan in the 1990s, Don Clark has moved through life embracing his passions. Eventually, Don turned his attention to design.
In 2000, Don and his brother again joined forces: this time bringing their creative vision and illustrators’ touch to developing album covers, posters, and logos for many of the musicians they’d met throughout their music careers.
