Ocean Dwellers, Desert Dwellers by Jess Mudgett

Jess Mudgett is a Portland-based artist and a friend of the brand for years. Originally from Colorado, Jess is inspired by the open road and open space of the high desert mountains. His primary mediums are India Ink on Arches paper unless its painting on old forgotten objects he finds on his travels around the USA. Large scale wall painting has been Jess’s focus the past few months. Hoping for lots of traveling and painting walls is in the near future. Mudgett’s work has been seen on the West Coast in restaurants, coffee shops as well as various business’s in Los Angles, San Francisco, Portland, Idaho, Colorado. Jess also worked at the Upper Playground PDX shop while attending college in Portland. Oh, and he's a totally rad skater to boot.
