Justin Wood is a native Californian born in 1977. After completing his BA in Illustration at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, he deployed into the field of editorial illustration where he has worked for the last decade and a half. As an experiment in the human side of the digital world, he studied and received his MFA in Art Practice at Stanford University. He serves on the Board of Directors of SacMod, a non-profit organization working to preserve Mid-Century art and architecture in Sacramento, where he lives with his wife and young daughter.
He finds inspiration in human interest stories, modern art and architecture, network hackers, bioengineering, energy extraction, the archive, things we are losing or have lost and foolish, reckless love (is there any other kind?) He also has a debilitating weakness for mint ice cream.
