The Bearded Monk

It’s summer. It’s Tuesday. It was time to brew some ideas at the Bearded Monk with fellow Artists Enclave Members & folks interested in what AEDC is all about!
We grabbed a cold brew and heard some remarkable entrepreneurial insights from Artist  Matthew Sallack of Otter Illustration.

Sallack is a Denton-based illustrator who focuses on subject matter like movies, music, video games, animals, junk food, and dinosaurs. His style is described as whimsical surrealism. You can find his work at the DIME Store, A Creative Art Studio and The Denton Community Market.
