About the Artist

Cody Hale is an artist currently located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. Hale earned a B.A. in Illustration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2005 and has worked as a fine artist, illustrator, portrait artist, and graphic designer for over 11 years. 

Hale's primary technique involves using toothbrushes to splatter ink on illustration board. He starts with a compositional sketch. Hale is then able to render his image by splattering layers of ink throughout the composition. 

Hale's education in traditional illustration techniques has fueled an interest for creating detailed renderings, but he is also interested in the fluidity of organic forms. His technique marries these two interests by controlling the organic process of splattering ink to create recognizable, composed images. Hale is also interested in themes dealing with vintage style and popular culture, and he creates many vintage portrait pieces. Other themes he explores are those of popular science fiction and urban landscapes.
