I’m currently working on several projects that I love!
My Debut Picture Book
WHAT WOULD I DO FOR YOU? is a 32 page picture book, my debut as an author-illustrator. This book combines my passion for storytelling and children’s illustration.
BIKE TALL T-Shirts
I believe one of the most enduring icons of the Portland bike scene is the tall bike. I respect those that build and ride them with pride. I think they should be celebrated.
Damon Eckhoff is a painter, illustrator, and UX Designer living in Portland, Oregon. He grew up in a small prairie town in Missouri and moved to Portland in 2003.
Damon’s art and design have been included in a 2012 Portland Mayoral Debate Campaign, Portland Parks and Recreation Bike events, and a story-telling website. You can also find his playful and smart artwork on clothing and other accessories at his Zazzle site, Fuzzy Bunny Cute Shop, and at the PEDAL BIKE TOURS online store. He holds a Bachelors in Fine Art from PNCA, a Bachelor in Science in Computer Science, and is a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators.
Focus & Approach
In addition to the biking world, Damon’s art often stars cute animals such as bunny rabbits, giraffes, and other kid-friendly creatures. His draw to these adorable beings is rooted in an optimistic appreciation for purity and the simple things in life.
Damon’s creation process is a unique combination of reverse glass painting, gouache, and digital which produces thought-provoking, funny, and vibrant works of art.
Hobbies and Fun
When he’s not creating, Damon finds himself belly-laughing at comedy shows, dancing his way through concerts, and hiking and backpacking all over beautiful Oregon. He loves to travel by train, and finds that some of his best ideas are born while sitting in an uncomfortable seat for long periods of time.
