jolby is by far one of my favorite art directing/illustrating duos. they met in school in san diego and found themselves in different cities (josh-chicago, colby-portland (oregon). they collaborated long distance for a while until josh moved to portland. their illustrations never fail to tell great stories and make you smile...even sometimes touch your heart and make you shed a tear. oh and they are also super nice guys!
their latest project is super awesome...they are self publishing a children's book in collaboration with rachel roellke. it tells the story of a king who is obsessed with the number 5 who wakes one day to find he has a sixth finger. the sneak peeks are amazing so far...head over to their kickstarter page if you wish and help them reach their goal!
from home is where you make it series
from portland with love screen printed cards
from sea legs (a collaboration with ashley forrette)
they answered a few questions in the spirit of thanksgiving for me!
q- what is your favorite side at thanksgiving dinner?
Josh - that's a hard question. I would have to say mash potatoes.
Colby - I am a mashed potato feind! Super fluffy and lots of butter.
q- i have to ask, what tops your thankful for lists?
Josh - My wife, family and friends. I wouldn't be who I am and where i am without them.
Colby- My loving fiancé, awesome friends, and a beautiful city to nurse my creativity.
q- what other professions would you enjoy if you weren't illustrating and designing?
Colby - A brewer or a barista
