You know the work, but do you know the artist?
Muir Woods, Amtrak, Americas Cup, Peet’s. The man behind these images, and many more, is illustrator Michael Schwab. For over twenty years, Schwab has produced work that celebrates life in the Golden State. His posters, logos and illustrations are instantly recognizable for their graphic forms and drama. Schwab’s work is at once bold and beckoning, and proves that simplicity is stunning.
Eric Heiman, founder of Volume Inc. and a professor of graphic design at CCA, will join Michael in conversation about the creative process, the development of a style, the power of ink on paper, and balancing life with the drawing table.
