Curtis Ashby is a painter and graphic designer living in the Pacific Northwest who specializes in hand drawn illustrations, logo design and brand identity. His bold, colorful imagery has been featured on everything from community murals, album covers, apparel and more.
In 2008 he started Paper Diamonds Clothing as a way to exhibit his art beyond the walls of galleries. It began as a silk screened t-shirt company but has since evolved into a lifestyle brand that includes original designs printed on everything from t-shirts, hats and patches to art prints and other handmade goods. In December of 2013 he participated in a group show in Houston, TX hosted by Juxtapoz Art and Culture Magazine and received a "Distinguished Artist" acknowledgment. That same year he took second prize in a shoe design contest hosted by Bucketfeet in Chicago, IL. His work reflects his interest in mid-century book illustrations, street art, scientific drawings, and abstract design.
