One of the most difficult questions to answer as an artist is how to find a unique style. Often style is born from the culmination of our own interpretations of the world around us and the events we have had the chance to experience. How we distill those moments down defines what we each feel is important. Over time, we create a kind of shape language from this routine, and that ultimately develops into our style.

At its core, CreatureBox is for anyone who enjoys bizarre monster design, comics of spacemen, and illustrations of everything in between. For the past several years, we’ve spent most of our time digging deep into what makes characters tick while trying to tell a few stories along the way. We’ve had influential childhoods filled with cartoons, robots, aliens, and creatures of all shapes and sizes.

Yet through it all we’ve found collaboration to be the most critical ingredient. Together this has allowed us to expand our sensibilities while challenging each other to become better designers. Most importantly, we’ve found tackling creative battles as a team is good fun and always provides a fresh perspective. Through the website, our visitors are invited along for the ride as we dive into the deep end.
