When Ryan and Lucy Berkley opened Berkley Illustration in 2007, they didn’t know that nearly six years later they’d have 37,000 Etsy sales and be hired to make art for clients like Nike and Spoon. But that’s exactly what’s happened.
The Portland-based husband and wife duo have become well known in the blogosphere and beyond for their vibrant, friendly portraits of animals wearing classic attire, influenced by their love of turn-of-the-century and old western photography. Ryan is the crazy talented self-taught artist and Lucy is the storywriter/customer services/computery person behind the scenes. (Lucy writes the bios so she’s allowed to be so boastful about Ryan’s talents!)
