About the Artist: 

The Red-winged Blackbird is home to the art and writing of Justin Rigamonti. Justin is a poet, teacher, and free-lance illustrator living in Portland, OR; he's been writing and illustrating stories since the days when he and his brother used to trundle their stuffed animals down to the park for creative brainstorming sessions, paper and pencil in stow.

Always a fan of drawing on "big paper" (as his nephew Jackson refers to any oversized  drawing surface) Justin has expanded his repertoire to include other, larger canvases: bedroom walls and white boards. If you'd like to speak with Justin about a mural for a bedroom or nursery, or for any specific illustration jobs, please call or send an email.
