Keith Rondinelli



This is the portfolio of artist, illustrator, and professional worrier Keith Rondinelli. In my other life as a “creative,” I am the founder and creative director of Woodhouse, an Ann Arbor, MI-based studio focused on design, motion graphics, and brand identity.

Here you’ll find the results of my ongoing mania to create strange and impossible antidotes to the Reality Principle. This is in essence a dream diary, a way out of rational categories, and a method for resisting data-driven metrics and commercial impulses.
