Lisa Perrin is an award-winning illustrator, designer, collaborator, entrepreneur, and educator. Her work has been recognized by The Society of Illustrators, American Illustration, 3X3 Magazine, and Print Magazine.

AntarWorks was founded in San Francisco in 1989, after Toyota chose Antar Dayal’s scratchboard style to introduce the Lexus Brand to North America. Since then the studio has provided the international advertising industry with award-winning scratchboard engravings. Originality and innovative art-based concepts as well as an intrinsic understanding of trends, aesthetics, and consumption habits have made Antar Dayal’s Studio the premier choice when it comes to commercial scratchboard illustration.

Mercedes deBellard is an illustrator from Madrid. Her work is well known, having a client list that includes Warner Brothers, Random House, and more. Few can capture the underlying soul of a person, as well as the image itself, the way that she can. Mercedes is one of our most popular portrait artists, showcasing a realistic yet delicately expressive style with an indefinably ethereal touch.

Jason Robinson has been a professional illustrator for over 15 years,  specializing in comic book-style illustrations, graphic artwork, and realistic portraitures for a variety of clients and needs. He has created everything from editorials, calendars, and comic books, to posters, storyboards, package designs, and more.

Charlie Wagers is a graphic designer, art director, and illustrator. Formally trained in fine arts, he draws inspiration from the antique and arcane: early printing techniques, vintage cameras and films, aged textures, forgotten books, and—oddly enough—old neon signs. He has worked for clients including NPR Music, ESPN, Warner Music, Six Flags Theme Parks, as well as a massive roster of bands, such as Dave Matthews Band, Alabama Shakes, Thrice, The Fray, and The Black Keys.
