My name is Bryan Odiamar and I'm currently the Design Director at Studio Resonate (Pandora/SiriusXM). I'm also the creator of "Thud" from Scout Comics.
"Peabe" (pronounced P.B.) is a childhood nickname I got because sometimes my parents forgot to pay for my hot lunch in elementary school and for the kids that didn't have hot lunch, the cafeteria person would make them PB&J sandwiches. I REALLY liked peanut butter and I REALLY disliked jelly at the time, and apparently, I was alone on that. So the cafeteria person started calling me "peanut butter" and eventually just "P.B."
I went to Columbia College Chicago, worked a variety of design jobs in Chicago, moved to Oakland in 2008, and eventually to Santa Fe in 2021. I have 20+ years of design experience with a majority of that time in advertising. In my career, I've been lucky to touch everything from product design to clothing production. I embrace any opportunity to create in any medium because in the end I just want to make things and tell stories.
Things I love: aqua, pink, black, comic books, most illustration styles, handwriting, Lego, cartoons from the 80s and 90s, hip hop (mostly 90s and early 2000s), graffiti, donuts, pizza, burritos, tattoos, working with leather, boots, sneakers, denim, and Chicago sports.
I live in Santa Fe, New Mexico with my wife Jamielyn, daughter Evie, and our dog Toaster (aka Toastface Killa).
