Jon Guerdrum loves to paint things that make people smile. His About Page on Etsy states: “I hope my art brings a grin to your face, and a giggle to your heart!” He works as senior mechanical engineer at Otter Products but spends time making his own art as much as possible.

Guerdrum lives in Fort Collins, Colorado, which he describes as “a land of great mountains, fantastic beer, and wonderful people.” In addition to painting, he enjoys hiking, biking, and camping, plus of course a good beer through the many local breweries. Home brewing is a hobby of his, and he also plays in a band called Spaceagle.

The artist’s watercolor and ink “Drinking Buddies” series illustrates the good vibes that ensue from imbibing. Guerdrum says his cat named Yeti is his biggest critic and inspiration.
