About Me

Ollie Oliver Albany NY Illustrator
Albany NY based Illustrator Ollie Oliver

I was born in Richmond Virginia. Having some luck and talent, I obtained a scholarship to Savannah College of Art and Design. In 2010 I graduated with a BFA in advertising from SCAD . Though I loved art direction and the thought process behind attracting a customer. I realized I loved illustrating the mock ups and storyboards even more. Thus, I became an illustrator!

Looking back… my first day as an illustrator would be in Miss Philip’s kindergarten class. I didn’t know it yet but the seed of destiny had been planted. I picked up that lime-green crayon and began scribbling. In that moment the potential for creation was infinite, so what would I create? ! It would be a station wagon with a robot shofer. He was a smorgishborg of lunch boxes, mugs, egg beaters and broken GI parts. My Frankenstein! I think it was in that moment that I realized the power of illustration ( or drawing as i called it ). I was hooked.

I have illustrated multiple books, colored comics, painted murals on large buildings and in corporate offices. It doesn’t matter what it goes on, I’m excited to bring it to life!

Outside of illustration I enjoy hanging out with my wife and daughter. I’m fascinated by hand lettering , hand painted signs and painted window splashes.
