What’s all this stuff about?
My name is Clint. I’m a designer, an illustrator, a coffee drinker, a bicycle rider, an occasional screen printer, an over-analyzer, a beard grower, a music lover, an enthusiastic uncle, a worrier and a lister-of-things.
“Tillman Project” is the collective title of all the things I come up with to do and make.
I graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in fine arts (emphasis in graphic design). My desire to make things, however, started long before that. Dishtowel capes, construction paper super hero masks, ramps for my toy cars…and that was only just last week.
When people ask what I “do” for a living, I can’t think of a better word than “maker.” Whether it’s screen printing shirts and posters, developing a graphic identity for a company, creating a weekly comic strip for the local paper, illustrating a book for my nieces and nephews, or just drawing things so they exist. There’s always something to do, and there’s always something to be made. And that’s exciting news for a maker like me.
