My name is Michael Wertz, and I’m an illustrator and a printer.
My images start with the pencil, and finish as digital collages, monoprints, letterpress prints, and screen prints. I love bold, bright color in all formats.
My clients include The San Francisco Chronicle, The Bark, Bill Graham Presents, Camper Van Beethoven, Camelbak, Chronicle Books, The DeYoung Museum, The Elsewhere Philatelic Society, The Exploratorium, Oaklandish, Random House, Rickshaw Bagworks, The New York Times, Nike, The Oakland Museum, Scholastic, The SFMOMA, and Wired.
I live and work in beautiful Oakland, California with my husband Andy and our pit-cattledog mix Blue.
