I live in the greater Seattle area. I went to college in the small town of Poulsbo, WA. After college I spend about another year living on the peninsula on the beach in the woods. I’ve been largely influenced by the area that I’ve grown up in. I’ve been a freelance Graphic and Motion Designer for just over five years now.  My largest passion is creating interesting things and learning new animation things! LEARN ALL THE THINGS!

In the event that you’re really super curious about me like a creep (we’re all creeps), there’s a little bit more Here!

To contact me, send emails to joe@joetowey.com!

Look ma! I’m making friends!

  4. Hi, I really like images with remains of human civilization overcome by nature. I find them fascinating. Have you seen the movie Stalker by Andrei Tarkovsky?

  5. It would be hard not be influenced by the PNW – especially if it was the peninsula. A sense of place, the surreal, the peninsula and a good grid! Funny! thanks for visiting me, too –

  6. Thank you for liking my post. My friend did recommend me to start screen printing. I tried Etching last year, I really enjoyed it. You t-shirts designs are very nice. 🙂

    1. I really like the variance you have in your style, but you can definitely tell it’s all done by the same hand!
      Wishing all the best right back! I hope that you are able to eat lots of fruit as well!

  9. Thanks for following my blog! I like yours, it’s very interesting. The name of it immediately got me hooked…. awesome! Love your work and look forward to seeing more!

  10. Thank you for liking my “Dreaming of Spring” post. I enjoyed looking at your photos, artwork, and creative experiments, and I like looking at the design of vintage things too. I hope you have a great New Year! 🙂

  11. Hey, thanks for stopping by and liking my post. I must say, your photos are awesome! I hope I can churn out something like them myself. 🙂

    1. Haw! You are cool!
      Did you ever notice that grids are, like, everywhere sometimes? And then you can’t see a good one to save your life!
      Thanks a lot for coming by and liking the Desert.
      I’ll be back soon………

  12. ah, I went to Seattle back in the fall and loved it there. So glad you stopped in at my site, so I would know to come & take a peek at yours. From the first glimpse, it looks like some very compelling geometric presentation. Look forward to seeing your other “science stuff.”

  13. Nice blog, i like the style of photos you have along with the captions you write. I will definitely be stopping by more often now.

    1. Hey T. Jay,
      Thanks for the nomination! I haven’t taken part in any of these yet. I’ve tried a couple of times but by the time I get around to it I find myself working on other projects.

      And I sort of have a perpetual fear that if I interject too much of myself on here, that it will devalue the work somehow.

      -Many thanks

      P.S. You should look into screen printing, your style would translate really well and be easy to print.

  14. We love your blog and your work. Slightly unsure why we havent found it before but you liked a post over at three/six/five about our bears and we thought we should check you out! We are now following. TheBigForest

    1. Nice! Ahhh, I’m going to go with the excuses that I’ve been busy working, and that I hit a super wall of artsy fartsy block while trying to work on a project. It was one of those that looked like a little project, but has already taken up around 20 hours in learning.

  15. thanks for stopping by and liking my recent post. I enjoyed looking through your photos. I can see you like to do macros. They are my favorite type of shot but I keep forcing myself to try other things so that I can develop my skills. Best Wishes!

  16. Thanks for the “like” on my blog article about Art. Hope you’ll check in again some time. I really enjoyed looking through your photography (wow!) and design and illustration work. I, too, worked as a designer for print, including on t-shirts at Gear for Sports. What fun! Keep up the good work… you’ve got “the stuff”!

  17. Hi Joe. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking a post in my 2013 Tulip series. I hope you’ll visit again soon. I look forward to having a look around your blog. Blessings, Robyn

    1. Woot! I went to college in Poulsbo and lived in Port Orchard for awhile as well, so I know right where silverdale is! And I completely agree!
      Thanks for the compliments!

      1. Mondrian was the champion of Dada and you can see the grid impact. The Italian dada poets were at first largely self published. I had an Italian magazine that went into grid. I think there is some Dutch material as well. It was a long time ago.

      2. I just remembered another resource, the History of Graphic Design by Meggs. I believe it was in the first edition and maybe it remained in the others.

      3. Hmm, don’t see that my replays are working. Anyway, the History if Graphic Design by Meggs has some pretty good info, Italian Dada poets are another.

  18. Thank you for visiting my blog. I really enjoyed the “dinorama”, I loved the colors and the concept. And I was really laughing when I saw your sick teddy post ! omg, that was clever ! I enjoy these kind of pictures. I hope you will post more of them in the future 😀
