“Creating art and music, that’s my version of going for a run. It’s kind of meditative and therapeutic, it just draws you in,” Chaz Bundick muses in his new ‘Sketch to Screen’ doc. Chaz graduated college with a graphic design degree when he became preoccupied with his music as Toro y Moi, but he still considers illustration an important and stimulating hobby. Today he runs his own design agency, Company Creative, alongside his record label, Company Records.
In the newly released video, Chaz discusses his illustrations while creating an original t-shirt at Yes Press, a screen printing studio in Oakland owned by Chaz’s creative partner, Brendan Nakahara. “I like playful logos,” he explains. “I feel like they’re approachable. And when you see a logo that’s not so serious, or so complicated you’re more inclined to wanna know more about it.”
