Brian Ewing is one of the most prolific, iconic image-makers in rock music and pop art. Like his heroes and mentors—Frank Kozik, Coop, and Tara McPherson, among others—he has built his success in poster art into a career that spans illustration, album covers, original art prints, skate decks, and shirt designs. Informed by art nouveau, ukiyo-e woodblock printing, SoCal “kustom” car culture, and the comics, Ewing’s work fuses his explorations of perspective, color, and space with classic imagery from American youth culture. His clients have ranged from Metallica and the Warped Tour to the Strokes and Death Cab for Cutie (not to mention The New Yorker and a number of advertising agencies).

Currently a resident of New York City, Ewing attended the American Academy of Art Chicago for Illustration and the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design for Fine Arts. His first monograph, Don’t Hold Your Breath: The Art of Brian Ewing, was published by Dark Horse in 2010.


  1. Really cool, man. I really like Tara McPherson's work. She's a pretty cool person, too. She was at a Dragon Con I attended a few years back. This guy's work is pretty sweet. Thanks for sharing, man :) Wish I could attend. Maybe I can catch a Tank bus up to Columbus? OR, better yet, we should arrange a group to go up and see it. Would you be down with something like that, Christina? Or anyone? Not only would you get the chance to see this guy, you can see where many of us went to school, if you haven't been, already. Chris Payne teaches there. Plus, there are typically cool things on display all over :P

  2. I would love to see this. Maybe if some of us could get a carpool to Columbus together.

  3. If you guys get a group heading up let me know.
    I'll show the gang around the Campus and maybe we can all do a lunch or something.
    Christina you got my number and email if anything comes of it.
