avintagethought is the studio of alxndr jones.

alxndr is an illustrator and sometimes-designer 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. he doesn't like vowels and or capital letters. 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, alxndr is a freelance illustrator & designer, but is always open to new creative opportunities.
