more swindle

May 31, 2007

here’s a few more images.  i made a bit of a surplus for this project so that we’d have more options laying it out.  i got to be a part of the layout and design process thanks to cleon over at the studio one office.  this was a lot of fun to work on!

Post 1:   My name is Mike Bertino, and this is my blog.  I graduated from Art Center in Pasadena, CA about three weeks ago, I live in LA, and work as an illustrator, cartoonist, and gallery artist.  I’ll do my best to keep this blog updated as often as possible with new work, show information and the like.

I’m including an image from a recent print edition that I did.  It’s 3 layers (2 letterpress linoleum cuts, and 1 silk screen).  If you’re interested in buying one, shoot me an email.

I also have a website where you can check out my portfolio —>

well, thanks for visiting, and hello! – Mike
