About Methane Studios
Methane Studios is an illustration and design studio co-founded by Mark McDevitt and Robert Lee. The team met at the Columbus College of Art and Design, where they both majored in illustration. After graduating in 1989, the two moved from Ohio to Atlanta, where they worked as illustrators for various companies. In 1998 they founded their studio with a focus on screen-printed gig posters for touring bands. Their styles combine vintage aesthetic and contemporary design showcasing strong narrative and bold, imaginative imagery. In addition to limited edition posters and art design, Methane Studios has a variety of custom items available for purchase in stores in Georgia, Florida, Illinois, New York, and Tennessee, including coasters, tote bags, hats, greeting cards, jotters, tea towels and more. Their first book, 21st Century Schizoid Brand, is a retrospective of Methane Studios’ work from 1998-2020.
