Art Scene Alert: Von Glitschka coming to SAA to talk about making illustrative design

There’s a new group of young hip creatives in town- and they aren’t supported by tax dollars or grants or involved with Richard Florida-

Illustration examples by Von GlitschkaIt’s the Dayton Creative Syndicate- the youth movement of the Dayton Ad Club (now unfortunately known as the Greater Dayton Advertising Association) and they are bringing in a hipster illustrator to do a dog and pony show about his work and process.

About Von Glitschka

Von has worked in the communication arts industry for 22 years. He now refers to himself as an “Illustrative Designer.” In 2002, he started Glitschka Studios, a multi-disciplinary creative firm

Dayton Creative Syndicate » Blog Archive » Illustrative Design presented by Von Glitschka.

If any of you don’t think an illustrator can make a difference, you obviously haven’t been paying attention to the work of another hipster illustrator Shepard Fairey and his work on the Obama campaign.

DCS has all the details of the event this Tuesday, Nov 11 at 6pm on the link above. Cost is $10 for most of you or $5 for students or members.

I’ll be there. Will you?

    I plan to be there!
    I’m a fan of the wonderful collective of artists in the creative syndicate. Most of them are employed by a very hip firm here in town, “Real Art Design Group.”
    Find out more at
    They are the StrawberryFrog of Dayton!
    I’m excited to watch how they will transform the new building they are moving into downtown. (facing north, in front of the Fire Fly Lofts, near Webster Station)
    I like it that these ubercreatives are just fine doing what they do and not bringing a lot of attention to themselves. They spend their energy having fun and doing what they love.

    We have amazing artists in this town most of which we will never hear about.
    Kyle Hotz, artist for Marvel Comics -lives quietly in Kettering. (hanging upside down in his basement and wearing black.)
    Jason Goad “Goad”, is regularly commisioned by MTV and bands such as Offspring, The Killers, Gorillaz, Chris Isaak and did the art work for The Warped Tour.
    He is 34 years old and is a contracted designer of Hot Wheels for Mattel. He
    lives in Centerville, visit’s his family in Farmersville like a good boy and can be seen at most C2 functions. He currently has an ongoing exhibit at the Dayton Mall location of Winan’s Fine Chocolates and Coffee. (go there and buy a print)
    Like the “Real Art Design” folks, most of our best talent exists quietly in lofts and house shows across the city, not in the spotlight of DVAC or The Cannery.

    GG- just a reminder- there is a small creative ad agency in town called
    Unlike Real Art, we don’t work on no-bid contracts for the Dayton Development Coalition and over bill by a factor of 20 like Real Art did on the “Get Midwest” campaign.
    Nothing against the talent in the firm- but before you wax poetic about my competition, just be aware that part of the reason they can afford that new building is all the work they did for TurnerEffect.

    David, I think you mean “no-bid” not no-big.

    There is another comic artist living here who’s work appeared in one of those comics anthologies. Don’t recall the name.


    Someone from that “Dayton Creative Syndicate” left a comment on this event on my blog, which was unexpected as I don’t blog on graphic design.
