ABOUT INK & SWORD

Based in Brooklyn, New York, Ink & Sword is an award winning art & design studio that produces imaginative and original artwork created by a professional illustration and design team. Whether the end product is a fine art print, gallery poster, woodcut, assemblage, short film or series, we take great pride in our process and enjoy sharing these ideas. Ink and Sword believes the idea of art is the idea itself. At the epicenter of all things will be our love of drawing, always.

We have an unquenchable thirst for learning. Inheriting from our studies and creating art that inspires, educates and makes people happy is what we strive for. Inspiration to illumination comes from all angles, especially when headquartered in NYC. Welcome to our studio.

audio – analog clicks, teapot whistles, the pacific ocean, subway trains, rickenbacker guitars, cat purrs, Massive Attack Unfinished Sympathy, Coltrane Favorite Things, Lou Reed Walk on the Wild Side, the buzz and rattle of this great city as it wakes up on the wild side of the bed everyday.

taste- halo-halo, brown sugar, pint of Guinness, saltwater sea, taco truck taco, Brooklyn Italian ice, habanero and coconut milk.

an object- fortune teller miracle fish.

Jed-BiographyPhotos
Jedidiah Dore
Owner, Illustrator, Stuntman, Muppet.
Jed love’s to play. He’s raced cars at 180 mph, jumped out of a perfectly built airplane, climbed El Capitan, surfed the North Shore and scrapped alongside The Dark Knight and The Amazing Spider-Man. Always in the thick of it, either drawing or doing it. Usually both. An artist with a preference for illustration, a skilled photographer who loves to draw and an experienced musician who once pursued writing. These unique interests crafted Jed into an effective communicator with a sophisticated visual style driven by his diverse background. Much of his inspiration is pulled through personal experience, extensive research and a well-worn library card. A seasoned traveler, he has lived in the Pacific Islands, amongst the Redwoods of Northern California and currently resides in Brooklyn, where he works full time as a graphic artist and designer.

Jed’s illustration was awarded by American Illustration and photography reportage seen on PBS. His artwork has been shown at the Tube Gallery, Norman Schafler Gallery, Triton Museum of Art, Hammerstein Ballroom-Pratt Best of Senior Show, The Society of Illustrators Museum, San Francisco Arts Commission Gallery Breakthrough Photographers Exhibition and featured in editorials such as British GQ, ReadyMade Magazine, Bust, Wired, RadioLab, i09 as well as various design boutiques internationally.
