Reach out at Ross.Boone@rawspoon.com. Or call/text to (303) 359-4232. And if my work has touched you, I’d love to hear about it and be connected with you. Facebook friend me too! That’s the best way to spread the word on new projects.
In the real world, I am Ross Boone.
If you are a reader of my fiction, I’m Raw Spoon.
I want to draw struggling Christians like myself back to God through my art and writing, and by the way I run my business.
My paid services include illustration (kids books, flyers, corporate, etc.), animation (music videos, whiteboard-type videos, etc.) and product design (from concepting through engineering drawings). See below for examples.
(I have a B.S. in
and another B.S. in
(here are some of my cool school projects). And I’m working on a
Masters in Theology.
I worked a 9 to 5 designing outdoor products for about 7 years. You can find a lot of my designs at Home Depot, Lowes, Ace Hardware, and I’m still discovering other places they ended up! but now I do mostly illustration, animation, and a little bit of product design.)
My Writing: But in my free time I write and illustrate books and blogs. I was a writer for Focus on The Family’s Boundless.org (young adults blog) for a year though I personally am not ideologically constrained to all of their views. I also write for YMI.today (Our Daily Bread’s young adults blog), and FaithHappenings.org. I write fiction under my pen name Raw Spoon, and non-fiction under my real name Ross Boone. Only my non-fiction is overtly spiritual, while the fiction has spiritual themes.

And here is a quick interview by the podcast “What Are You Reading.” The found me at the Decatur Book Festival!
Speaking: I would love to come talk to you or your group (of adults or kids!) about writing, art, self-publishing, making kids books, or turning grief into something beautiful.
One-on-one: If you’d like a consult about your brand as a writer, about how to kickstart your own blogging/writing/illustration career, or you want help generating compelling ideas, I’d love to meet with you!
Booth: Watch for my booth at book fairs. And please come say hi!
