INTERVIEW WITH JACKIE BROWN



Tell us about yourself, and how you started making art.
I am a graphic designer/illustrator/wannabe ceramist based in Portland by way of the Bay. Can't say when exactly I started making art, but I do remember my brother teaching me how to write bubble letters with the shine marks when I was in elementary school. That may have been the start of my love of writing type. I didn't start getting into design until High School where my AP Art thesis was based on a series of Button designs based on my life. 


Do you have a signature style or element that can often be seen in your work?
Bold, welcoming, and straight to the point. I never like to over complicate things. I'd say my style definitely mirrors my personality. 


Your artwork can be seen  throughout the city on posters and a mural in the Southeast. Tell us what your role as a Portland artist means to you.
I just want to use my talents to spread positive messaging in my community. We will always need it, so I like to make reminders. I honestly did not realize how big of a hit the Riso graphic printed posters were going to be—OutletPDX started printing them in June and now I see them all over the city! haha 

Lastly, what inspired the design and message of this tote bag?

"Climate Change is Real "on one-side is pretty self explanatory. There are so many ppl in decision making positions who simply deny that this is true, and it is so ridiculous. On the other side it is an illustration of the peace sign on top of earth. "Peace on earth" I just feel that it is our duty to protect the planet and also the people in it.
