Introducing Our Pre-Launch Set Artists

We are thrilled to have released our pre-launch site and received such positive feedback about the look, feel, and direction of the site.  What we have out now is just a tiny taste of what is to come soon.   

In the past few days, we’ve received a number of questions about the artists whose artwork can currently be collected on the sign-up pages.  We wanted to tell you a little more about them.  NeonMob is about more than creating a delightful experience for collectors: it is also about celebrating the work of artists.  We can’t wait to provide a new platform for both established and emerging artists to showcase their talents.  

Without further ado, thank you to Craig Stanford, Cleonique Hilsaca, J.R. Schmidt, and Matt Kaufenberg for helping kick off NeonMob with their fabulous artwork.  These artists hail from geographies as diverse as their artistic styles.  We look forward to seeing what they come out with next! 

Craig Stanford

Craig Stanford lives in Sydney, Australia.  He works as an iOS developer by day and as a freelance developer and illustrator by night.  He has a passion for cute, cuddly monsters, which are often inspired by “shapes or colours I see every day and think, ‘I wonder what it would look like if that had a mouth and eyes.’”  See more of his whimsical creations on his Dribbble profile.

Cleonique Hilsaca

Originally from Tegucigalpa, Honduras, Cleonique now lives in Georgia and attends the Savannah College of Art and Design.  For her Daydreams set on NeonMob, she chose to depict girls in surreal environments.  ”I like to create simple but meaningful concepts which deal with emotions, dreams and the inner self.”  Go check out her fantastic portfolio.
