Penn Tomassetti, Digital Graphic Designer, Illustrator

I am an artist, watercolor painter, illustrator, photo editor, graphic designer, art instructor, languages geek, and paleontology enthusiast. I studied Graphic Design at the Art Institute of Pittsburg from 2002 – 2006. Since then, I've worked in photo-editing room interiors for high-end brands (York Wallcoverings, Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines, Disney, Candice Olson, Stacy Garcia, and many others), custom illustrations, book illustrations, drawing, watercolor painting, product photography, design and color for repeating patterns, logos, branding, and marketing materials for print and web.
I learned Spanish as a second language and have various levels of proficiency in ancient Greek, Latin, Hebrew, Italian and Mandarin. I spent about a year translating articles from Spanish into English for on indigenous peoples issues and Mexican news.
I am always seeking to learn and improve in my work as a creative colleague, and in my personal life as a husband, father and neighbor.
