Maseman is Mason McFee, an artist and designer living in Austin, Texas.
Born Mason McFee in 1981, Maseman spent his childhood in a small Texas town called Boerne collaborating on projects like building tree houses, rolling giant boulders down hills, building skate ramps and jumping bikes into creeks.
Since his days of rock and roll, he’s spent seven years designing and art directing at a an Austin start-up. Now he is working for hire for a variety of clients in Austin and elsewhere.
If you don’t find me hanging with friends and family, I’ll probably be drawing, designing,
building, making, computing and sometimes just thinking.
“Still a child at heart, his art oozes with his affection for the outdoors. Outside of his personal work, Mason has worked for seven years designing and art directing at a successful Austin start-up agency. The inner struggle between the graphic design Mason and the art Mason is real. But the work, whatever the medium is realer.”
-Kendrick Daye, Art Nouveau Magazine
Some of Maseman’s activities involve working with others to encourage creative collaborations.
From 2005 to 2012, Mason was an art director and designer at Screamer Co., an Austin advertising and design shop, where his work helped the company achieve many advertising awards. What Mason enjoyed most about working in the agency was working with other artists, designers and interns on projects of many different kinds. While at Screamer, he helped the company form an annual art publication which was distributed at launch parties and included entries from around the world.
“Art has always been the leader of the revolution.” Or perhaps more simply, as participant Mason McFee,
a printmaker and illustrator, says, “I like to make art; you should, too.”
Mason has contributed to a wide-range of design projects, art shows, and events in the past:
