Patrick Long is an illustrator who lives and works in Portland, Oregon. The son of an architect, he was taught to pay attention to the ceiling, as well as the space under the stairs – composition, essentially, whether on a page or to a room. His drawing has brought many crossroads, from campaigns for Nike and Starbucks, to fabric designs and scarves for Nina Ricci, animation collaborations with Laika, and video for 1000memories. His lifelong interest in making things is recently expressed in his bag company Chester Wallace, named after his two grandfathers.
