Shawn in three poses

Hi! My name is Shawn Turek and I draw stuff.

I create illustrations and comics/graphic novels, as well as produce whiteboard explainer videos. I’m interested in collaborating with other writers and storytellers, so contact me if my style is a good fit for your story! I am also seeking representation in children’s publishing (comics/graphic novels/picture books).

Explainer Videos

In addition to my illustration work, I also create custom whiteboard explainer videos. Explainer videos are used to convey complex and abstract ideas in an entertaining and engaging way. In a world of smartphones and social media, attention is the new “currency”, and my explainer videos are a great way to stand out and hold a viewers attention long enough to unpack the details of your product or service.
