Like many of the neo-contemporary artists today who have bridged the gap between analogue and digital creation, Illustrator and painter Johnny Rodriguez is a successful graphic designer, with a client list including MTV Networks, Universal Pictures, Microsoft, Lexus, Disney, and Activision. He has built an impressive portfolio of both artistic and technological accomplishments in the world of graphic design and new-media.

And his painting alias KMNDZ is built upon the premise of reflection, hope and a burning desire to live life to the fullest. Looks like he isn’t wasting much time so far. Find him on Artsprojekt, and if you’re in San Francisco, you can catch his next group show at the Shooting Gallery opening October 10.
