About the Studio

trzøwn/ˈtrizzOwn/ ) is the illustration studio of Northeast-located, cartoon-watching, skateboarding, illustrator, animator and printer Kirk Wallace.

The studio is based on the fundamental idea that by working on projects we love passionately, with close knit teams of people, honesty, detail and personality, we can succeed together and have a blast doing so.

Whether for art prints in the shop or client commissions, with a degree in computer science, there’s a logical, concise, organized and speedy approach that is applied and then contrasted by creative partner, skülboy. This lanky skeleton counterpart works with Kirk harmoniously to balance all that logic and organization to bring out the creative, wonked-out, energetic side of trzøwn. Think Calvin and Hobbes but one you can hire to make things and solve problems.

Through this near perfect balance, the two put their heads together and grind out some seriously custom and carefully cared for solutions and products that focus on illustrations with a fun, somewhat wacky, and always appropriate style.
