Unsure about where his graphic design career was headed after a couple years into his first job out of college, Adam Vicarel took off for Asia where he taught himself the art and skill of hand lettering. Adam’s experiences in Asia changed his mindset and laid the foundation for his future.

Nearly 10 years in, Patrick’s still going strong. In our chat, we talk about dealing with doubt, getting into galleries and finding new clients.

Interview with Painter + Muralist Pedro Barrios
Painter & muralist Pedro Barrios “never intentionally” tried to become an artist. In fact, he actually has degrees in marketing and nursing to prove that he didn’t. Pedro is now working as a full-time artist as 50% of Denver’s The Worst Crew with fellow artist Jaime Molina. In our conversation, we talk about finding work through developers, understanding client needs and why they stopped signing their work.
