avintagethought is the studio of alxndr jones.

alxndr is an illustrator, designer, and printmaker in northeast minneapolis. he believes the beauty is in the process and simplicity is pretty complex. alxndr likes to make stuff, get his hands dirty, and be outside. when not working, you can find him hanging out with his wife & dog, touring northeast taprooms via bike, writing terrible indie-rock songs, or, most likely, at a baseball game.

currently, he is a freelance illustrator & designer, as well as an art director / designer with minnowa creative.
