As far back as he can remember, Dillon O’Keefe has been drawing, originally inspired by childhood cartoons.
A New York native, Dillon studies illustration at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Like most students, he’s struggled financially, but that hasn’t slowed his creativity. Spending most of his money on food and subway fare, Dillon has been fortunate to make ends meet through side jobs. “I don’t wake up wanting to do somebody’s logo, but you do it, because somebody’s paying you for a talent or technique you’ve honed and refined. You have to trust yourself.” It’s that confidence that allows him to still express himself creatively, meeting his own standards on all freelance work.
