Our summer 2017 Box Art was drawn for us by local Portland artist (and fan-of-our-pizza) Nicole Andrijauskas. She received her BA in Painting & Textiles from San Francisco State University in 2006, and taught mural painting throughout the public school system there. In 2012, she received her teaching credential to expand on her artistic endeavors with young students. Nicole has exhibited work in numerous Bay Area galleries, Vancouver, Columbus, and Portland.
We launched the Box Art initiative for our 7th birthday in 2016. Tim Eads of Philadelphia was the designer of our first Box Art commission. Tim was one of our initial funders and supporters year ago, and we were thrilled to reproduce one of his original designs on our boxes. He is a textile designer, screen printer and all-around cool artist currently producing handmade bags that can be found in shops all over the country and at www.shopeads.com— check him out!
