Justin primarily focuses his artistic attention on creating large woodblock prints (real large — sometimes 8 feet high) and on doing various other projects. He is currently doing illustrations for the Travelogue and Backpack Journalism sections of Vagabond Journey.com.

Throughout all of his artwork, Justin maintains his own unique style — he has surely found his Voice. I am honored to have him as an essential part of the Vagabond Journey team.

    Very talented young man. This is streets ahead of the wood blocking we did in school. I am always amazed at artist who make these things look so simple, yet I am still drawing stick figures in an attempt to create something wonderful.
