Brand By Hand with Jon Contino


Throughout all of this, he has gone to design hell and back, facing obstacles like fear, self-doubt, and bad luck. He recently chronicled many of these stories in a new book, Brand By Hand, which explores his lifelong devotion to the guts and grime of New York and cementing his biggest artistic inspirations, from hardcore music to America’s favorite pastime. In his book, and in his talk, he’ll be sharing how he has taken a passion for pen and ink and turned it into an expanding empire of clients, merchandise, and artwork.
