I created the visual accompaniment and artistic style for the outdoor storytelling podcast, The Dirtbag Diaries. Each episode focuses on the personal stories of adventure enthusiasts worldwide. Episodes are often funny, sometimes heartfelt, and always about amazing people doing amazing things in wild spaces. With over 250 episodes, and 3 million downloads each year, The Dirtbag Diaries continually ranks within the top 5 Outdoor podcasts on iTunes.
Since 2007, I have crafted illustrations for episode title cards based on a short synopsis. It is incredibly rewarding to create the imagery because I get a lot of leeway with the brief. It allows me to explore new styles, utilize new toolsets, and find creative solutions to my briefs. It is a fast paced and fun endeavor. Here is a quick video exploring my process for title card creation. This episode is about a fool hardy mining operation in the arctic.
