About the Artist:
Specializing in packaging, branding, and advertising, Garner grew up always pursuing what made him curious. Playing the drums in bands with friends is where it started for him. Garner discovered his passion for art and design when he was promoting his different bands in high school. Garner had no budget for self-promotion, posters, flyers or merchandise. The hand crafted DIY mentality of making something your own, to share with people, connect with and inspire them, became an absolute obsession for him. Old toys, movies, stories, ads, packaging, and comics influenced Garner’s work. In his free time, Garner loves hiking through the mountains or desert as much as he enjoys walking around the city to absorb creative energy and inspiration. His process combines illustration, hand lettering, photography, painting, screen-printing, collage and digital design.
