Liam Sweeney was born in New Haven, Connecticut to a family that – wonderful as they may be – couldn’t draw a straight line with a ruler. Shocked by Liam’s early drawings, his parents first made sure there hadn’t been a switch at the hospital, and then encouraged him to develop and explore his artistic inclinations. He’s been doing so ever since.
Liam moved to Florida, having decided to attend the University of Miami, when he was 18. He found university life, as well as the culturally rich city at its gate, to be a bottomless sources of inspiration. He graduated with a B.A. in Graphic Design in May of 2009.
Following graduation, Liam landed an internship with the artists from TLC’s hit show, “Miami Ink.” It was a creative match from day one, and he became a full-time graphic designer for the artists’ second venture, a children’s urban lifestyle clothing company: Ruthless & Toothless.
Now 30, Liam is becoming one of the go-to creative professionals in South Florida. He is available for freelance work. His recent clients include: Bulltoro Watches, Upset Gentlemen, The Miami City Ballet, The Miami Ad School, Teach For America Miami-Dade, ESPN, Dress For Success Miami, Robert K. Futterman & Associates, Terranova Corporation, 3Prime, LLC and Disney's The Lion King Website.
