Jeremy came onto our radar several months ago when his artwork came across our Instagram feed. His beautiful line work, amazing rendering of the human form and quick wit had us hooked. Jeremy’s printmaking skills are what caught our attention first, but we quickly realized that his talents went far beyond just this particular trade. It seemed like as we walked about KC, we kept running into things that he had his hands in. Jeremy spends his time between running a tiny house movement, teaching at KCAI, working on freelance illustration gigs AND creating his own line of fine woodblocks and prints. The man is a work inspiration!
So, without further ado, here are a few words about Jeremy and his work…
“If you asked Jeremy Luther where he was from, he’d probably say everywhere and nowhere. He’s bounced from Kansas City to Milwaukee and back with an extended stay in Norway and Tulsa that taught him how to see the world from a different perspective.
He has acted as graphic designer, illustrator, art director, and production director for several respectable publications while also practicing fine art, running Tiny House Creative with his wife, and building a tiny 160 square-foot house on wheels. He’s a jack of all trades, master of all, but has enough modesty and humility not to tell you thereby forcing his wife to write the more flattering parts of this bio for him.
He wears a lot of different hats, both figuratively and literally. Actually, he seems to always be wearing a hat, which is really just a suspiciously accurate metaphor for how hard he works. His skill set includes, but is not limited to, designing for print, layout, idea generation and art direction, story-boarding, drawing, carving wood with x-acto knives, printmaking, illustration & sequential composition, community engagement, volunteerism, Lonerism, and furniture making.”
We are very excited to see what the world looks like through Jeremy’s eyes and to see what he will be sharing with us on his Instagram journey, so here are a few images of his artwork and past Instagram photos…
Be sure to follow Jeremy on his KCAC Instagram story starting tomorrow Thursday, December 29th – Tuesday, January 3rd!
