COLLAB #24 with Dustin Cox

mike ritter


CHUX COLLAB #24 with our good friend DUSTIN COX

Dustin Cox (Born on September 12th, 1991 in Sioux Falls, South Dakota) is a Toronto based graphic designer with a fine arts background.  He is inspired mostly by the 1990’s street art scene that came out of NYC.  He looks up to artists such as Keith Haring, Retna, Aaron Delacruz, and David Salle. Growing up in Sioux Falls Dustin found it challenging to find an arts community.  He then packed his bags to attend college in Minneapolis, MN.  While in Minneapolis Dustin showed his work in various local art shows, and even curated three of his own art shows at his house in Uptown Minneapolis by the name of Home is Where the Art is.  Dustin graduated with a degree in Graphic Design (Print Media) from MCTC in 2015.

One day after college graduation Dustin packed his car and moved to Los Angeles, CA.  He wanted to be surrounded by good weather, and a vivid arts community.  A lot of laborious nights, and hard work brought him to the City of Angels.  While living in California Dustin worked as a graphic designer for Rodeo Realty, painted frequently, and worked on some exciting freelance gigs.  After 2 years living in the L.A sun he again packed his bags and headed to the East Coast; Now he resides comfortably in Toronto, Canada. Dustin works with multimedia, and acrylic; but is also trained on the Adobe Creative Suite.  His work is influenced by travel, typography, daily society,  music, and life.

CHUX COLLAB #23 with Marlena Myles

"Mnísota Wičháŋpi Owáŋžida"

As told by Ringing Shield in 1903:

"One star never moves and it is sacred.  Other stars move in a circle about it, they are dancing in the dance circle." That star is called the North Star in English and Wičháŋpi Owáŋžida, the star that does not move, in Dakota.

Mnísota is the homeland of Dakota people. Wičháŋpi means star. Owaŋžida means "staying permanently in one place" if you accent the second syllable (waŋ). Also Owaŋžida means "together, in unity, as a team, to have something in common" if you accent the first syllable (O) instead of the second syllable (waŋ). To me, it's a play off of the old hockey team but also represents how everyone of all different backgrounds come together in unity to call Minnesota home, just as Dakota people have for centuries.

november 2017 - Old Tom Foolery

CHUX COLLAB #11 with our unsappy, uncrappy friends Old Tom Foolery

Old Tom Foolery is the brainchild of Joel Gryniewski and Lauren Gryniewski—two ad-industry vets who also happen to be married. Back when Joel was wooing Lauren, he had a tough time finding cards that were: a) funny, b) letterpressed (they’re both suckers for a deep impression), and c) not so dainty as to make her question his masculinity. So they set out to make their own witty letterpress cards that would appeal to both sexes. Old Tom Foolery launched its first line of "unsappy, uncrappy" greeting cards, The Footnotes Collection, at the National Stationery Show in 2008. Over the years, OTF has expanded its product lineup to include the Headlines Collection, Classic Collection, and Banner Collection. The company has won six LOUIE Awards (the Oscars of the greeting card industry), including the Rising Star award in 2010, and the Most Humorous award in 2012. Old Tom Foolery is headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, and is proud to print all its products locally.

october 2017 - brent schoonover

CHUX COLLAB #10 with one of our all time favorites, Brent Schoonover.

Hailing from the epicenter of culture known as South Beloit, Il, Brent was on a one-way trip to normalcy until the fateful day he laid eyes upon his first comic book. He immediately grabbed hold of a pencil and never let go, dedicating himself to creating scores of characters and scenarios with a zeal that would make lesser men quake in dread. 

Now located in Minnesota, he draws upon a fertile imagination marinated in comics, old cartoons, classic horror movies, pro wrestling and face-melting metal to create distinctive illustrations with a retro feel that run the gamut from comic books to editorial and packaging assignments. So if you have a project that needs a fresh look, give him a call. He has plenty of ink to go around.
