Illustrator Research #45- Mitch Frey


Mitch Frey has been illustrating professionally for 13 years. Over this time, he has branched out from woodcut to several other styles and media. Much of Mitch's most recent work is reminiscent of the WPA poster style of the 1930s-1940s. Images are rendered in Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.

His clients have been ebay, Hershey, Intel, Ford, Nationwide Insurance, Weyerhaeuser, NetInteraction, American Lung Association, Standard Insurance, Portland General Electric, The Pape Group, Cascade Fresh, Masters Gallery Foods, Taco Cabana, WebMD, Tillamook Cheese, Alaska Quality Seafood, MFinancial, Drypers, WeSync, Sequent, US Software, Jeld-Wen, Chuckanut, Oregon Brewery, Oregon Lottery, The Oregonian, The Oregon Garden, Portland Rose Festival Association, The Oregon Zoo, Oregon Department Of Forestry, Olson Engineering, Reed College, Linfield College, Rocky Mountain College, St. Martins College, Pacific University, Legacy Health System, Tuality Healthcare, and Brim Healthcare.

I admire the skills he has with vector art, and a lot of the colors and shading are really beautiful. A few of the pieces recreate both a sense of realism and traditional tools.
