Welcome! I’m Woodbury Rand (my url just screams it at you), an illustrator and comics artist. I live and work in Chicago, with a BFA from The School of the Art Institute, working at the International School of Comics. My work generally revolves around this general wellness of being, or at least attempts to. I find humor in most things, which leaks into just about everything I do. Even if our baseline living standards are bleak and dark we can always laugh at ourselves.
I’m a freelance illustrator and cartoonist, always with an eye towards the next big project. This space is my online portfolio and personal gallery, and it is also a blog about my own personal advancement of skill in art. I love making illustrations and comics, and as much as I enjoy creating I know that I can always improve. I hope that with each post, I can see my own level of skill advancing until… well, actually, I have no stopping point. I feel that most artists can always be better, faster, bigger, no matter what skill level they start at.
