What Do I Do?

I get lots of questions from students about what kind of work I do. In a nutshell, the early years of my creative practice was focused mainly on freelance design. I also spent a good bit of time designing and binding artist’s books. The last few years I have focused my energy on building an illustration portfolio and have had some fun freelance illustration jobs. Feel free to see what I’m up to on Instagram @jamierunnells where I show creative play and some client work. Or check out my work on my (ahem, badly needing an update) website. Wanna talk some more about my work, process, freelance issues, feel free to stop by and chat!
