Hello, my name is Kyle Smith and this is my Six Foot Giraffe. A growing collection of personal art, thoughts and memories. Since 2007. What started out as a few doodles to round out a thin student portfolio, grew into a detailed chronicle of my experience. The wins, the losses, and everything in-between. It’s all here, even if some reading between the lines is required. I consider the work I do here to be my most important and only aspire for it to inspire.

Beyond this work, I live in the urban sprawl of Los Angeles with my beautiful wife Alexis, and make my living working as a Freelance Art Director and Designer, making art and communicating ideas for brands of all shapes and sizes. I keep my freelance work on a separate portfolio site at ksmith.tv

New posts Mondays. But not always every Monday. I go weeks without missing a beat, or weeks without making a single post. Whatever the case, new posts are almost always on Mondays.

Say hello. If you like what you see here, let me know, I'd love to hear from you. It inspires me keep it all going week after week, year after year.

Where to start. 1985 posts across 17 years is a lot to look through, so I put together some of my favorites, all in one place. If you’re new here, it’s a great place to start.

Shop prints & apparel. I have some select pieces for sale through a few different shops. I update these shops once or twice a year, but if there’s a particular piece you’re looking for not already listed, let me know and I’ll see what I can do. I donate 100% of my proceeds from these shops to P.S. Arts. They work to keep arts programs alive and thriving in under-resourced public schools and communities across California.
