Bob Snodgrass

Glass Artist Profile

Bob Snodgrass is considered to be the "Father of Borosilicate Glass" among the glass blowing community. When designing an article on someone so important to so many people, I thought his introductory page deserved a special hand drawn illustration. I felt as though the piece captured his friendly personality and likeness, while also juxtaposing imagery indicative of his "Snodgrass Family Glass School" in Eugene, OR. Stylistically, I blended the psychedelic imagery associated with his rise to fame and the Art Nouveau style that has come back into fashion while also informing the original psychedelic movements imagery initially.
