Don Pendleton

Don Pendleton is an American artist, Grammy award winning designer and illustrator out of Dayton, OH. His work has been featured in over 30 magazines over the years from various art, skateboard and culture publications (including the cover of Juxtapoz Magazine in 2013) and he continues to work commercially with design and illustration as well as dedicating time to the fine art realm with his painting. Pendleton's client list includes brands such as Mountain Dew, Volcom, Nike, Vans shoes, Oakley, LG Electronics and Logitech. His illustration and design work on Pearl Jam's 'Lighting Bolt' Album in 2014 earned him a Grammy award. His first solo museum show ('Fine Line,') was at the Huntington Museum of Art in July 2014. The design of the jacket was inspired by the minimal punk rock denim jackets of the 80s that typically featured white ink on the back of denim jackets. There is also a painting on the interior back of the jacket, kind of an easter egg that only the wearer knows is there.
