Artist / Photographer / Designer
Hello there! I’m Ian, I am a full-time artist, illustrator, graphic designer, and photographer currently freelancing in Ohio. I run my own full-service creative agency called Ian Moss Creative. I am an alumnus of the Columbus College of Art and Design with 20+ years of experience in the industry specializing in graphic design, illustration, photography, and post-production. I am proficient in digital and traditional art techniques, the Adobe Creative Suite, and photo editing software such as Capture One. I also have extensive experience with studio lighting, advanced digital photography, and photo retouching.
Creating is my passion and I love sharing that passion with others. My goal is to impact and influence the culture around me through art and creativity. I love helping other creators grow in their craft as well. I am a storyteller at heart and love telling stories through my art and artist statements. I am a results-driven professional, focused on quality work and meeting deadlines while staying within budget. I love being an artist, being creative, and fostering productive work relationships with customers, supervisors, and colleagues. I even have my own Twitch stream where you can watch me create my art!
I’m originally a SoCal kid of the ’80s and ’90s so naturally I favor the pop culture from those eras, though really let’s be honest I’m a full-fledged non-discriminatory lover of pretty much all things nerdy. It won’t take long in talking to me before the topic inevitably makes its way to Star Wars or D&D, especially on my live art stream. Did someone say Star Wars, yeah I’m the artist who cosplays as Qui-Gon Jinn “These are the prints you’re looking for.” Like any self-respecting epic nerd of the 80’s I’m also a huge metalhead! My wife and I are raising our amazing daughter properly and training her in the ways of true nerdery. Did I mention I’m also a con artist? I’m not kidding I actually sell my artwork at comic cons, fan cons, game cons, and the like. I also sell my art and merch on a few different websites.
Thanks for taking a moment to get to know me a little, I look forward to the possibilities of adventures to be had together.
