~Nomad Illustration is the marriage of Damon Rodrigues' talent as an amazing artist and his wife Stacey Rodrigues' background in print production which she learned from her dad Richard Meyer, also a gifted artist and retired printer. The 3rd generation of Nomad Illustration are Evan and Bailey, their children who are also very artistic.
Damon is available for commissioned work. He enjoys working in acrylic, pastels and charcoal.
A California native, Damon’s inspiration comes from the natural beauty of the San Francisco Bay Area, and is influenced by the landscapes of the Pacific Northwest where he spent time as a child. Upon graduation from Encinal High in 1986, Damon took leave from UPS and enlisted in the Army. He lived in Germany for several years prior to a tour of duty in Desert Storm in the 2nd Armored Division. Damon returned to Alameda, resumed working at UPS and met his wife Stacey in 1991. He has a Bachelor’s degree in Illustration from The Academy of Art University in San Francisco.
Richard's self portrait above demonstrates his ability and style. He has rendered countless grandchildren and pets, and is ready to paint your loved ones too! After earning a degree in fine arts from the California College of the Arts, formerly CCAC, Richard worked for several years as illustrator / art director for a printing and publishing company. In 1964 he purchased a small printing company. Combined with his advertising and graphic arts business, Superior Press grew to be one of the largest businesses of its kind in the East Bay. After 31 years, he sold the business and retired in Brentwood. He is always looking for new challenges.
Evan discovered his love for art in his early teens. He learned how to make block prints from his Grampa Richard. Evan studies Spanish, and has traveled to Panama and Paraguay, staying with a host families for eight weeks each summer. He will be graduating high school and heading off to college this year.

She continues to develop her dramatic graphic style independent of the influence of her Dad and Grampa, it comes naturally. She'll design your tattoo, or express your favorite quote in her unique lettering style.
