Hello, my name is Kai Patrick. I am a freelance creative professional and I am currently an illustration major attending the Minneapolis College of Art and Design. My illustration work is a mix of technical line work, flat colors, stark contrast and a playful sense of humor. Although my focus is on illustration I am fascinated in a wide spectrum of visual art forms including graphic design, product design, animation and much more. I have designed look books for an art gallery and illustrated merchandise graphics for an independent arts magazine. I have even made architectural concept sketches for a nonprofit infrastructure project. However, the work that I make for fun focuses on fictitious people or characters interacting with an environment. I find it incredibly enjoyable to give these characters a narrative and consider who they are and what they’re doing. I feel that this gives my work a sense of emersion, inviting the viewer into an imagined world. As my career progresses, I see myself working with small businesses to make their brand identity beautiful. As well as collaborating with creative friends and peers to bring passion projects into reality.
