Name: Halle Cisco
Location: Portland, Oregon
How about a brief introduction?
I am an illustrator, designer and educator originally from Ohio, but now living in Portland, Oregon. Being the only girl with two brothers, I spent a lot of time alone doodling and creating imaginary friends. I have taken an art class here and there, but am mostly self taught. I prefer pen and ink, letterpress and screen printing but also like using the computer to add color and text to my drawings. You can see more of my work at www.hallecisco.com.
What does going green mean to you?
It means being conscious of the paper and inks I use in my designs. I try to use recycled paper and soy based inks when possible.
What projects are you currently working on?
I am currently working on drawings of objects. The series is called Things the Same But Different. Some of the objects are shoes, glasses, and vintage cameras. I also just finished my annual (10th year!) Halloween card.
What’s your favorite tool?
Pen and ink.
