HEYA, it's Sid

I am a visual artist, designer, and professional saxophonist from the enchanting Whidbey Island, Washington. Since childhood, my boundless energy and curiosity have driven me to explore various artistic outlets. Whether I was drawing whimsical cartoons and humorous caricatures, capturing moments with my trusty Nikon D50 or adventuring barefoot through the outdoors, I was always creating and discovering.

 

In 2016, I graduated from the University of Washington with a BA in Painting and Drawing and a minor in Jazz Performance. After graduation, I channeled my artistic skills into designing posters, album covers, and merchandise for my band, Smacktalk, and Seattle's vibrant music scene. Self-taught in Photoshop and Illustrator, I seamlessly blended my hand-drawn creations with digital design, often losing track of time as I delved into new software or painted intricate portraits.

 

In 2021, I decided to further hone my design skills by pursuing an AAS degree in Graphic Design from Seattle Central College, proudly graduating in June 2023.

 

Today, I work as a freelance visual and graphic designer, crafting designs and artwork for the music scene and local businesses. Additionally, I work full-time in Education at a Montessori school. Looking ahead, I am excited to continue merging my love for illustration and visual design with my musical journey, forging a career that celebrates and supports my unique creative style.
