The Illustration & Design World of Zach Johnsen


I am co-founder of the Portland, Oregon based tshirt and apparel company, Tank Theory. I acted as the main designer, art director and overall aesthetic motivator behind the brand from its' inception in 2001 until the spring of 2009.  Fast forward to 2016, I am now, not only still the main designer, but also the owner and operator.

FALL 05 - BELLY OF THE BEASTTshirt design, print and accessories design, and art direction for the Fall 2005 season, From the Belly of the Beast.  This season I created almost all the artwork based on the theme "to hell in a handbasket".. Generally, I wanted everything to be dark and sinister, but with a very ornamental, prim and proper appearance.. Kind of like if you sat down for dinner with the devil...Surely, you would dine in elegance..
