Joey is the co-creative director at Formula Werks and has called Chicago his home for the past several years, after graduating with a BFA in Illustration from the Maryland Institute, College of Art. He has been drawing and painting since childhood. His father’s drawings, Saturday morning cartoons, video games, plush animals, comic books, T-shirt illustrations, toys, and skateboarding were his earliest influences. After graduating, he moved to Chicago where he was able to focus his attention on apparel design, custom painted shoes and toys, and of course, paintings on canvas and wood panels. He is always working on new pieces and hand-painted customs for shows in the U.S., Asia, and Europe, as well as many other artistic ventures. Joey’s clients include New Balance, Hasbro, Beautiful Decay, Burger King, and Freshly Dipped. When not painting, he is drawing, creating T-shirt designs, pacing back and forth, hating slow computers, and dreaming of eating a steak. He is also a founding member of the Chicago art collective the Cartel.
