Aaron Bickner is a truly skilled artist hailing from Minneapolis. Aaron is not only an illustrator, designer, sign-painter, & trash collector, but a very nice individual as well. I had the pleasure of attending illustration courses with Aaron at MCAD, and I was always so excited to see what he would come up with for our briefs. Every piece always seemed to stand out from the rest of the pack in some way or another; whether it be by his soft-spoken well thought out ideas or by the brilliant execution. Aaron’s work is thoughtful by not only his beautiful line quality but in the way he seems to complete an illustration as a whole. At times he will create small shadow boxes, sculptures, 3D collages usually including found materials from his environment. Aaron always struck me as someone completely in-tune with his surroundings and his work really portrays that well. I also dig that in his commercial portfolio most of his client work involves small independent and community beneficial organizations. Nice!
