Tom Pappalardo: Graphic Designer, Illustrator, Cartoonist, Writer, Animator

Professionally, I am a graphic designer, illustrator, and After Effects animator. I like clean, flat, and bold. I work under the name Standard Design. My coffee art print is well-liked by many folks.

Subprofessionally, which I’m pretty sure is a word, I am a writer, a cartoonist, and a painter. I’m always posting comics, writing, and silly videos at the-opt.com, and my paintings & prints are available for purchase on ETSY.

Unprofessionally, I play music. I’m the more-handsome and less-talented half of the drum & guitar duo The Demographic. I had a song on Car Talk once. I have released five albums.

I live in Northampton, Massachusetts. When I’m in a room full of idiots, I pretend to be the smartest guy there. When I’m in a room full of smart people, I pretend to be an idiot. As I have grown older, I have retained an appreciation for Iron Maiden.
