Chris Piascik

That surname is a tricky one to pronounce so let’s just stick with Chris – the incredibly talented illustrator,designer, sketch artist and conversational poet with a personality to match. I know because I follow him on twitter. I’m a great admirer of his work. Not many people can bring a simple word on a piece of paper to life, adding rhyme and reason to each simple stroke of a sharpie. Recently he found a stack of plain white business cards and for USD5, he’ll write anything you want on it. Brilliant.

Here is the second round of tiny, word-drawing commissions.
Previously: Word Cards

Here’s the info: I’ve been holding onto a stack of business card size paper samples from my days working at a design studio. I’ve been meaning to do something with them for a while but never got around to it. Now, I’m going to change that!

For $5 I will illustrate any word* on one of these cards and send it to you. Once the stack is gone—that’s it!

I’m planning to get one with the word “Skybambi”. I’d suggest you get your hands on one if you’re a typo fanatic like me. May his work inspire you to sketch & doodle in your notebooks during boring meetings and mundane train rides. You can check out the complete oeuvre of Chris here at his website


An artist who recently held his sixth solo exhibition, Chris Piascik is also active in the design community. With 6 years of professional experience at award-winning firms in New England, he is currently working as a freelance designer and illustrator. He has been fascinated with design since he discovered his parent’s music collection at a young age. It was his first exposure to design, and it was only a matter of time before he began remixing the album packaging to better suit what he was hearing. He holds degrees in Visual Communication Design and Art History from the Hartford Art School at the University of Hartford, where he has moonlighted as an instructor of several design courses.
