Name: Jillian Kaye Schoettle

I am a designer + artist in traditional + digital media. I earned a BFA in Studio Art in 2012 and I've been cultivating my freelance business ever since. This background trained me in a wide variety of mediums and now I have an inclination to mix several practices in one project.  Specializing in typography, hand-lettering, and portraiture, I find most of my inspiration from pop culture, music, musicals, movies, and television. My artistic background also factors into my interest in mail and postal art, and in teaching art and English at Teen Camps in the Czech Republic. I've had the pleasure of working for a variety of clients, local and national, including Visa, Cheree Berry Paper, TOMS, and the Renaissance St. Louis Airport Hotel.

My digital portfolio of artwork done for various clients is located here.

I hand-letter envelopes for special events and would love to make your invitations as special as you'd like. 

Please, feel free to contact me for more examples or with an idea of your own.

I love illustration, typography, and a well-drawn ampersand. I have a keen fondness for the Czech Republic and good television, so I write and draw about both often. I draw inspiration from Edward Gorey, Bill Watterson, Alphonse Mucha, Lois Van  Baarle, Glen Keane, and Shaun Tan. I'd be no where without my wonderful husband, Jacob, and a supportive family whom I love. I enjoy reading, vinyl records, antique stores, crosswords, beautiful doorways, musical theatre, cloud formations, and macaroni & cheese. The drum solo in "In The Air Tonight" is probably the best thing ever and I get really sad if I turn on the radio and that part has already passed.
