Hello, I’m 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 my thin student portfolio, grew into a detailed chronicle of my adventures, successes, failures, loves, 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 the work I do here, I live in the urban sprawl of Los Angeles with my beautiful wife Alexis, and I work professionally 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

Where to start? 1879 posts across 14 years is a lot of content, so I put together some of my favorites all in one place. If you’re new here, it’s a great place to start.

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

Shop prints & apparel. I partner with a few distributors so I can spend more time making things, and zero time at the post office. I update these shops a few times a year.
