Bonehaüs is the commercial freelance studio of Solo-working, northeast located, cartoon watching, skateboard riding, illustrator, designer, and animator Kirk! Wallace and his creative (imaginary?) partner sküllboy.
Working with me is based on the fundamental idea that by taking on projects we love passionately, with close knit teams of people, friends, honesty, detail, and personality; we can succeed together -- and have a blast doing so.
Started under the moniker trzøwn in 2010, the studio has made a recent change of name to Bonehaüs to better identify with the truly collaborative nature of working with Kirk. While Bonehaüs is the home of a solo freelancer for hire, the network of talented friends expands the home’s ability to work on projects of just about any size.
With an undergrad in Computer Science, and MFA in Illustration, there’s a logical, concise, organized and speedy approach that is applied and then contrasted by creative partner, sküllboy. This lanky skeleton counterpart works with Kirk harmoniously to balance all that logic and organization with the creative, wonked-out, energetic side of Bonehaüs. 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.
So I work out of a studio in Massachusetts with my dear friend and sound designer Jeff Guerra of Bushwack. We’ve created the space from blank canvas in accordance to everything we need and are very proud of it so anytime you want to swing by, feel free to reach out. Every couple of weeks we’ve got friends coming by to hang out or work next to us to further deepen our address book of homies.
I also run a small and mighty print shop from my studio where I work on artwork ready for your naked walls to hang, wear, or stick. Everything shipped out has my heart and soul jam packed to the brim.
