About Hershel Self
I’m a graphic designer, screen printer & photographer based out of Tulsa, Oklahoma. I was lucky enough to have been raised by artists who encouraged me to explore my passion for the arts at a very young age. I graduated with a Bachelors in Fine Arts with an emphasis on screen printing and photography from Midwestern State University in Texas. Since leaving Texas I’ve started a family, been a freelance photographer, worked for a design agency and played major roles in a few small screen printing companies. This path eventually led to me starting and co-owning the Tulsa based company Mythic Press. After helping to grow Mythic from a side project with one employee, to a full fledged kick ass apparel company occupying a 6,000 sq foot building, employing 15 creative people and selling merch out of 2 retail locations, I found myself spread thin and feeling more like a manager then an artist. In spring of 2020 I made the difficult decision to leave Mythic and go out on my own to begin work as a full time artist.
My current drive for creating is fueled by all the amazing architecture that can be found here in Tulsa. With a plethora of art-deco structures there is ample reason to be inspired. Not only do I enjoy the process of creating pieces relating to Tulsa architecture but also researching the various buildings’ history.
No matter the task, I’ve always had a love for the process of creating. Especially when I’m able to work with, or help, others using the skills I’ve acquired over the years. If you’re interested in working with me, give me a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
