Sean Usyk

Visiting Assistant Professor of Communications Design, Illustration



Sean Usyk's active studio practice captures the fantastical nature of storytelling for books, board games, and card games. His work often depicts characters and creatures in luscious environments filled with history and experiences. Usyk has collaborated with authors and poets, such as Lewis Kahler and Brandon Shaw, and has been published in Portrait Literary Magazine. Drawing from his love for science, nature, the human figure, and traditional illustration, Sean's work focuses on dramatic lighting in a painterly application on characters and environments, drawing the viewer into the majestic beauty of the narrative.
