Today we're featuring my friend Steven Tyler's new show... no, different Steven Tyler... anyhow, it's called, "Know Indy." I think you're gonna dig it.

Aaron Scamihorn (AKA: Ronlewhorn) is an Indianapolis based artist. He has created artwork for musicians including Cake, Mayor Hawthorn and Bayside, and is known for his unique style of screen print portraits. In this episode, Aaron talks about what it was like to be raised by two artist parents, how he found his way to screen printing, and what drives him to create.

Check out Aaron’s work at http://www.ronlewhorn.com/

He didn’t realize graphic design was a career path until high school, when he took a class that taught him about 2D v. 3D design. After working for IBM and running his own business for eighteen years he would eventually become the first design producer in product at Twitter.
