This Paper Ship
Joel and Ashley Selby of Sanford, North Carolina began their entrepreneurial journey shortly after they graduated in 2008. They create illustrations that start as a series of sketches, then refine each in Photoshop and finally print them in-house using archival ink. Joel and Ashley draw inspiration from the world around them and from both their imaginations. They work together through the process, passing each illustration back and forth until they feel the image is perfect. As parents of a young daughter, Joel and Ashley have their hands full, but like to spend their spare time taking walks in the woods, writing fiction and poetry, and learning the piano.
