Studio Ink cards by Carrie Shryock

Carrie Shryock, Artist

Carrie’s happy place is on a hike in the mountains that leads to a crystal lake where she can skip rocks.

Fun fact: I hate being the center of attention.

Childhood dream job: A veterinarian. I still think that would be fun.

Favorite food: Homegrown tomatoes fresh from the garden, sliced and seasoned with just a little bit of salt. Or on a BLT with a side of corn-on-the-cob. That’s the definition of summer where I come from.

Preferred medium: I have to choose?! Well, I’m a bit partial to painting with gouache at the moment. But when it comes to art supplies, I don’t discriminate.

Biggest compliment: My sister-in-law says I have “the Carrie filter.” I like to spend time just observing the world, soaking it in and letting it all rumble around in my head. Then it all gets spit out in my artwork.

Fun fact: I am obliged to watch any movie that has John Cusack in it. Obliged.

Childhood dream job: Artist (since I was about four years old).

Hometown: Simpsonville, South Carolina

Ideal day off: Painting, goofing off with my wife and kids, and staring into the ether.

Preferred medium: Ink and brush on paper.

Nicest thing anyone has said to you: “I do.” —My wife on our wedding day.

Studio Ink cards by Jack Pullan

Jack Pullan, Senior Artist

Get on Jack’s good side by offering him clementines (“they’re nature’s candy”), or join him in a little Disney karaoke.

Fun fact: I know all the lyrics to the complete soundtrack of Disney’s The Little Mermaid.

Childhood dream job: I wanted to drive around in a van and solve mysteries. Or be an artist.

Ideal day off: Binge-watching The Golden Girls.

Favorite food: Lasagna, because it’s spaghetti-flavored cake.

Pets: I have a Labrador and a Boston terrier, and I foster Chihuahuas.

Philosophy: I didn’t choose the pun life. The pun life chose me.

Preferred medium: I work digitally, but I prefer Etch A Sketch® or LEGO®.

Biggest compliment: That I look like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory™.

Anything else: Anything?

Studio Ink cards by Lauren Hom

Lauren Hom, Artist

Lauren’s bright color palettes and playful hand-lettering are fueled by hard work and spicy chips.

Studio Ink cards by The Firecracker Press

The Firecracker Press

The Firecracker Press opened shop in February of 2002. They’re pros at letterpress and love combining antique printing technology with modern thinking.

We are: Nerds. Very hardworking nerds.

Fun fact: St. Louis, our home base, was a major printing hub in the 1800s through the early 1900s, and many of the tools and equipment we use have a direct connection to this rich history.

Ideal day off: Outdoors. We all have an appreciation for nature and enjoy Missouri’s many trails and waterways.

Favorite food: We are on a very serious quest to find the perfect chocolate chip cookie.

Pet peeves: Dirty rugs, talking with your mouth full, squirrels destroying your garden, people with no manners and misuse of the words your, you’re and yore.

Biggest compliment: The Missouri History Museum referred to us as the “future history of St. Louis.”

Studio Ink cards by David Olenick, Artist

David Olenick, Artist

David spends his time like he spends his money: prudently, thoughtfully and predominantly on sangria and guacamole.

Philosophy: It can be summed up thusly: “How dare you, David? Who do you think you are?”

Preferred medium: I went to see a medium on the Lower East Side a few years ago. She contacted the spirit of one of my ancestors who warned me to sketch only with ballpoint pens stolen from banks and hotels.

Secret formula: 1 sketchbook + 2 glasses of wine + 1 sleeve of thin mints + being slightly anxious precisely 96% of the time = hilarious.

Favorite food: Though it’s a beverage, I have no choice but to say coffee. I really like gummy bears (what grown man doesn’t?), but I’ve never been rude to a cab driver because I was deprived of them.

Obsession: I became addicted to decorative bookends about three years ago. It was a freaking nightmare.

Danielle Kroll, Artist

Danielle inspires everyone with her whimsical artwork, but she herself is inspired by junk—um, that is, “vintage treasures.”

Studio Ink cards by Mirna Stubbs, Senior Artist

Mirna Stubbs, Senior Artist

Mirna’s unique style draws inspiration from her toddler’s very free and bold mark-making, and she hadn’t tasted chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter or tacos until she moved to the U.S. at age 17.

Creative outlets: I love to cook. If I didn’t have a million college loans to pay off, I’d go back to school for culinary arts.

Favorite ice cream: I’d rather feast on some dark chocolate.

Pet peeve: Wrinkled rugs. People who take the elevator for one floor—going down! I could go on, but it would make me seem unpleasant.
