NakYouOut: Quarterly Artist Collab
As we settle in to the new year and our new look, we’re excited to announce a special artist collaboration project! Each quarter, NakYouOut will partner with a different local artist to create various promotional elements. Our goal is to keep the site fresh and exciting, while supporting local artists and getting them exposure for their work. Our first collab was with Matt Gondek. That’s his tough lil’ owl to the left, ready to ‘knock you out’. For future collaborations the partnering artist will also create new designs for the website header and our social media. Stay tuned for our quarterly makeover!
Matt Gondek is a local freelance illustrator and artist. He has worked with clothing companies, bands, extreme sports, wrestlers, and even the NBA. He was also voted “Best Local Artist” by Pittsburgh Magazine 2011. His work has an edgy street aesthetic, often combined with his creepy monster illustrations. Matt designed a NakYouOut sticker for us featuring his interpretation of the site’s trademark owl, and he’ll be writing some articles for the site as well. Be on the look out for NakYouOut at upcoming local events to snag a sticker of your own! You can also purchase some of Matt’s art prints and t-shirts on his site.
