A look at the Art of Brett Stiles

Artist Brett Stiles gets his inspiration from his son, skateboarding, music, graffiti, table tennis, industrial design and travel. Based in Austin, Texas and part of Homestead Creatives, a renowned agency and production company, Stiles is a master of logos, posters, brochures, books, album covers and more.

Throughout the years, he’s worked with such prestigious clients as Nike, AT&T, Southwest Airlines, Nabisco, The United States Air Force, Vans and many more. Over the years Stiles has become a highly sought after illustrator, specializing in “what you wanted all along but couldn’t quite explain.”

James Yamasaki for Billboard Magazine

James Yamasaki created this illustration for Billboard Magazine about the SXSW Festival held in Austin, Texas. The big brands pulled back in response to the oversaturation of marketing and big business in the prior year. An executive in the middle of the chaos puts his hands up and walks away. The art director wanted “something really colorful, with a lot of movement.”

James Yamasaki is represented by Linda de Moreta. See much more of his work through his Directory of Illustration portfolio and at
