PixArt: November Feature II – Fatherhood is Incredible

I must admit, when we approached artist Jeffrey Devey to contribute a piece to PixArt I didn’t predict we’d get something as charming as this! Jeffrey’s work on Dribbble is mostly graphic design. His appealing text treatments and icons didn’t prepare me for the greatness that he has presented to us here. A recent father himself, Jeffrey ‘s wonderful tribute to both The Incredibles and parenthood in general is a breath of fresh air. So sincere and sweet, I’m sure this will be a favorite among our readers. Our thanks to Jeffrey for taking the time to contribute this fantastic image! [Read more…]
