Congrats to John Snyder!

And thank you to everyone who submitted this year. We love the creativity and inspiration.

John Snyder is a Los Angeles based artist and graphics designer. From his beginnings in Oklahoma and experiences traveling with a military family, he finds his true inspirations rooted in nature and music. He can always be found with a coffee mug in hand and blissfully losing himself in art.
