Shannon Brady is an illustrator based out of Minneapolis, Minnesota. He received a BFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
His job hist...ory has included the refilling of gum ball machines to teaching English in Vietnam. Currently he is working as a freelance illustrator and a graphic designer for the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
His quest for a set of rose colored glasses has taken him to the ends of the earth. Along the way his mind has tried to wrap itself around the multitude of visual experiences and incorporate them into his art.
The work on this sight is the beginning of a new direction. His previous stuff was photographic collage in nature which he had been doing for the last several years but has decided to take it in a new direction by returning to his drawing roots and focusing on the mixing of drawings and photographs. His work was recently selected by American Illustration XXV and will appear in their next annual this fall.
