Profile: Kozyndan

For some people, work can become a refuge from a nagging spouse. For the two members of Kozyndan, work is their spouse. These LA-based illustrators are actually a husband-and-wife team: Dan and Kozue (although she prefers to be known as Kozy) Kitchens, hence 'Kozyndan'. It's safe to say that this is one job interview where the outcome was never in doubt.

The pair met while studying illustration at California State University, Fullerton (from which they graduated in 2002). "We actually met in painting class," Dan recalls. "I saw her from across the room and, in classic fashion, she caught my interest immediately. We were friends for about a year until we started dating. We've pretty much been inseparable since then. Although it wasn't until we'd been dating for two years that we made our first piece of art together."
