It didn't take Ryan Perkins long to dazzle the SLUG editorial staff with his unique style of poster design. In fact, we liked his work so much that we gave him the coveted position of adding illustrative elements to our August cover. Although SLUG fell in love with Perkins based on poster design alone he dabbles in a variety of other mediums. Perkins will be selling screen printed cigar boxes and sketchbooks, which he binds himself, at Craft Lake City on Aug 14. Perkins graduated from the University of Utah in 2009 with a BFA in sculpture and intermedia emphasis, but long before he earned his degree had had akready made a name for himself in the local art scene. Perkins has had work exhibited in many shows at Signed and Numbered and most recently at "Liminal" at Kayo Gallerty. Visit his website ryanperkins.net to see his full resume and check out his work.
