A.R. :: Doug Ross


Doug Ross is an illustrator in Santa Cruz, United States. Ross studied graphic design at Sheridan College of Canada after studying engineering at the University of Toronto. Since 1991 he has engaged in the artworld as a free-lance illustrator. He donates a great deal of his time to charities such as the Marine Mammal Center, California Bat, Conservation Fund, and even the California Aids Run. His style like many others is different medias. He works with a lot of digital prints to even hand made silkscreening.

I really enjoy the style that Ross creates. The images are very simplistic but the use of color is impressive along with the concepts. He has a very nice variety of subjects as well.
