Biography

Eric Larsen is a multiple-style illustrator. Seriously, check it out---he's like an art department, but without the drama, the turnover and the mandated employee benefits. He's in Portland, Oregon, where he started his career working in a full-service, certified bat-shit-crazy, boot-camp studio environment where you better handle whatever gets thrown at you. But, Eric is not one of the crazy ones.The best people are usually the easiest people to work with and he's worked with a lot of great people, nationwide. He'd love to work with you too---on any of your projects---big or small, extended production schedule or drop-deadline. Hope you don't hate it that you got so many choices!
