Artist Interview: Cannon Dill

Illustration // Tuesday, December 10, 2013
Cannon Dill is a Bay Area illustrator and muralist whose sketchy, black-and-white drawings have a very tactile, folkloric feel. Cannon's oeuvre is heavily focused on the interactions of nature and the urban spirit, a conflict that finds grounding in his work translating drawings to large-scale murals. He recently had a solo show at Oakland's LeQuiVive Gallery and he has collaborated with other well-known painters and street artists such as Zio Ziegler.
