Artist | Professional | Varied
Cody Vrosh is a self-taught freelance illustrator and painter. His depictions of dark and whimsical companionships attempt to express the aspects of one's personality that we typically hide from the world. With an emphasis on experimentation, his fine lines and chaotic ink patterns have graced such diverse surfaces as hand-cut burned wood and coffee-stained paper. For most of his work, he currently uses a process called Wood, Water and Fire - watercolor on wood, which he then carefully blow-torches to accentuate the wood grain.
In 2007, he founded Binary Winter Press, an independent book press and eco-friendly screenprinting workshop. Publications include two books of illustrated prose, The Irrelevant Redemption: A Steampunk Fairytale and Ash & Ember. His most recent book is "The Gasmask A Day Project", a collection of images created for his Gasmask A Day blog project, during which he set out to create a new gasmask themed painting or drawing for the next 100 days. His clients include the The Cartoon Art Museum, Modern Eden Gallery, The Razor Skyline and Mission: Comics & Art.
He currently works and resides in a detached netherspace near the SF Bay Area with his wife and co-conspirator, Sheatiel Sarao. He's passionate about animal rights, robot rights and makes a mean vegan cheesecake. He exhibits his work at art galleries and comic book conventions across the country.
