Artist | Professional | Varied
United States
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.

Apparently we stab in the same circles according to the facebook, and I like your work so I'm watching.

Nice. Yes, this art world can sometimes be a small one.

Hey Cody,
I'm sure you meet tons of people at the 'cons who later come up to you and try to quiz you on when you all met. That seems odd to me, so I just wanted to say thanks for our chat a few weeks back and thanks for letting me watch you draw for a bit. I love your work and it was really cool hanging out with you for a bit. I just got my comic-con ticket (just one, stupid site screwed me into only sunday tickets) so I hope I'll see you again next year. Keep up the good work, man.
- Nico

Hi Nico,
Sorry for the delay! Got buried under work. It's always tricky trying to concentrate and draw at shows, especially CCSD, but I'm glad you liked it. Good talking to you too, and definitely don't be a stranger. Cheers!

Hey Cody,

I totally understand that a pro is busy running the circuit. Are you going to be at Wondercon? It's nothing compared to anything you've done, but just in case you're interested, here's the link to my project's facebook page: [link]

It's just a few concept art pieces right now, but pieces of the script that I wrote are going up soon. If you get a minute, then please take a look and let me know what you think.

Hi! I bought your piece "A Litany of Non-Compliant Breathlessness" at SubZERO, and I'm so glad to not only have found its name but also the artist who made it. The way you use watercolor totally inspires me to give it another go.

Hello! Thank you very much and I'm glad you found me too. Watercolor can be tricky but very rewarding, my advice...
-Don't be afraid to get messy and experiment.
-Speed and patience, work quickly, but give it time to dry between certain steps.
-Be a child playing with colored water. Watercolor will fight against strict control just as much as you would. Work/play with it.
Good luck!

Thanks a ton! I'll try thinking of it that way from now on. This already feels like some of the more helpful art advice I've ever received in general :)
