When Becca isn’t making art, she’s exploring Austin with her husband, son, and two super-pups Layla and Rose.
“I learned of Miller IDS a decade ago as the preeminent Austin printer for beautiful reproductions and large-scale scanning. In the early days as an independent artist, they scanned and printed ink doodles I made for fun. I would sell them on a patchworked blog to friends with cut and paste PayPal buttons. I was a scrappy young artist and I loved their gorgeous, reliable work. Even more, I loved chatting with Larry each time I visited. I was a small account, and yet everyone knew me by my first name and treated me like a friend.
Fast-forward to today, they are still supporting my work via a burgeoning wholesale business. I love working with Dana Burton in the Fine Art department. She always gives lightning-fast responses, helps work through problems, and each print job is beautiful. In 2020 I partnered with Dell Children’s Medical Center on a digital mural. When my initial production partner fell through, I reached out to Miller. Their graceful assistance mid-project on one of the largest artworks of my career was when I knew I was in love. This business has been around for a long time and it shows. I trust them implicitly and would emphatically urge anyone to work with them on all projects large or small. This is by far my favorite print shop in Austin!”

“I actually look forward to the days I pick up my work at Miller IDS. From the moment you walk in the door, you know it is a special place of business. The customer service at Miller is really special (Larry brightens any day!), it’s obvious that strong relationships, kindness, integrity and quality are paramount here. As a fine artist, it is more than a pleasure to work with Dana as she is so talented and absolutely dedicated to the most professional and stunning results. It feels good to know my art and work is in the most capable hands.”
Since 2000, Urbanspace has served as Austin’s first and only full-service urban core living solutions company, providing real estate development, sales, and marketing expertise — amplified by our in-house interior design studio + modern furniture showroom — with an intense passion for living the urban lifestyle. We are an organization committed to Austin’s growth and development, with an emphasis on architectural design, sustainable development, urban communities and modern design products from around the globe.
Urbanspace put their stamp on the Austin skyline with The Modern Austin Residences, a 56 story condo tower entirely developed, marketed, and sold by Urbanspace. To create an immersive sales center experience for their buyers, they worked with us to take advantage of the vertical space on the walls and windows, with displays that included a panoramic aerial view from the tower, a map of the vibrant neighborhood surrounding The Modern, and a timeline of Urbanspace’s major milestones.
“The sales center turned out even better than we hoped, and a lot of the credit goes to the Miller IDS team. We were impressed by their professionalism and the quality of the work. They made the process of moving from conceptual designs to reality a breeze. We had a great experience working with Miller!” – Robbie Polk
“I was sitting in my 5th grade art class. Our teacher challenged us to submit a design for the cover of the school’s yearbook–and I won! That was the moment I knew I was an artist.”
Growing up in a military family, Travis has been able to travel the world and experience the beauty of many different cultures.
He earned his Bachelor of Fine Arts from the School of Art and Design at Texas State University – San Marcos. Upon completing his degree, Travis found his passion for teaching and earned an all-level certification in art education and is currently teaching middle school art in Leander ISD.
“I like to describe my art as abstract with an emphasis on color relationships—balancing cool and warm, light and dark. Most of my work is experimental with no true desired outcome.”
“Miller IDS has been so helpful getting my professional art career off and running. The staff is very informative and knowledgeable in their craft. The quality of their products and services are top notch.”
What makes Tom Robb`s drawings of our favorite musicians and rockstars a bit different? Tom Robb has been a bodyguard for some of the most popular musicians and rock stars for over 35 years. Touring with Bands like Metallica, Robert Plant, Green Day, Linkin Park, Creed, System of a Down, Twenty One Pilots, Kanye West, and many more gives him a special insight and different view of these popular singers.
Traveling to over 85 countries with music tours has left little time to draw his favorite subjects, but during his rare time off he is always challenging himself to catch the raw emotion and pure intensity he sees and feels nightly by these unique artists.
Creativity runs in Tom Robb’s family. His older brother, Dave Robb, (a great artist in his own right) has had great success as the Head Designer of BMW motorcycles in Munich, Germany for over 30 years. His youngest brother, Doug Robb, is the lead singer for the band Hoobastank and is quite creative and artistic himself and has been a subject of Tom`s drawings in the past.
Tom Robb’s art is owned by many celebrities including James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett of Metallica, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin and Sensational Space Shifters, David Grohl of Foo Fighters, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt of Green Day, Doug Robb of Hoobastank, Bo Jackson of the NFL and MLB, and Shaquille O`Neal of the NBA.
“I do want to say my experience with Miller Imaging is one of the reasons I started getting serious about my art again. The process was so seamless and easy. Every question and concern I had was addressed quickly and professionally. I was learning on the go and Madison`s patience and understanding (on designing his one-sheet) made the whole learning process become a passion project. I have not had that experience in the past and I wouldn’t go anywhere else at this point.”
Jason Wallerstein was born in South Florida in 1977. As a child, he played in the swamps along with snakes, frogs, turtles, and spiders, and he appreciates the flora and fauna that make up the South.

Jason has a love for printmaking and is constantly painting; focusing on his surrounding locale and adventurous encounters. Jason Wallerstein and his family moved to Austin in March, 2020. He quickly fell in love with the Texas Hill Country and its’ critters and all of the amazing things (mythical and real) that Central Texas has to offer. From watching the Austin bats flee downtown bridges in search of food at dusk, armadillos in psychedelic party attire, to wild turkeys gobbling aggressively, Jason Wallerstein’s artwork is meant to share his love for all things Texas and the outdoors.”Miller Blueprint’s Dana Burton is so precise and a true perfectionist when it comes to all things color related. Dana is meticulous at color matching prints to the original artwork and really values accuracy, with an unwillingness to settle for anything less than perfect, which as an artist, is truly important and an asset to have on your side.Sydney Donelson is a super supportive cheerleader for any artist that works with Miller Blueprint! We really love working with Sydney because she is always happy, easy going, friendly, and has an amazing can-do attitude about printing artwork. I know I can shoot off an idea to Sydney and she can give me a run down of what has been done in the past or, how to execute my ideas to grow our business. I recently had an emergency and needed a large print done and called Sydney in a panic. She was able to quickly assess our needs and even set up delivery, right to our studio!
Working with Miller Blueprint has overall been a true pleasure. The professionalism exuded by Dana and Sydney has allowed us to feel comfortable working with Miller Blueprint. And, we will continue to do so in the future.” – Donna Wallerstein, Sales & Marketing Specialist BrunkyArt
Connie Adcock was a first-grade teacher at Colorado Academy in Denver for many years. Her approach to teaching young children was to combine her love of books and storytelling, with her flair for art. She loved teaching the kids and was very proud of the stories they wrote and illustrated.
Then it was time to retire. Connie and her husband decided to start a new chapter in their lives by moving to Austin. “In line with my notion of moving to Texas for a new “adventure,” I thought to myself: Now it’s time for me to be an artist. So I started painting every day – watercolors and acrylics mostly – and I have loved every minute of it. I’m fascinated by color and pattern, especially in nature. But I also like to create intricate, abstract patterns.”
“With each picture I get immersed in the emotion of the painting. These emotions run the gamut from thoughtful and introspective to exuberant and wild. Generally, I think my art expresses positive emotions. People often tell me it seems cheerful and optimistic. I know I love sharing it with them.”
“I have worked with Larry and Dana at Miller Blueprint for many years. They are wonderfully competent, but even better, they are wonderful people – always friendly, supportive, and helpful. I would strongly recommend Miller to anyone who is looking for graphic services.”
Born 1969 in California, artist Shannon “Shan” Fannin brings vehicles to life with a combination of photorealism and abstraction. Painting in a unique style using acrylics, hands, and brushes allows her to focus on the vehicle while giving a hint of the abstract surroundings. Fannin travels within the United States and internationally to photograph vehicles and talk with their owners to enhance her creative process.
Fannin has had 3 solo exhibitions in Colorado, Florida, and Texas. She has shown in national galleries and museums throughout the United States including exhibitions through the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society, International Guild of Realism, American Artists Professional League, and American Women Artists. In January 2022 she won First Place in the inaugural Bill Neale Automotive Fine Arts competition. In March 2021 she received Best of Show with the International Guild of Realism, and she became a finalist for the Art Renewal Center exhibition, which included more than 5000 entries from over 80 countries. In 2020 Shan was awarded Best Composition in the National Oil & Acrylic Painters Society Best of America. She has been published in Korean, Greek, British, Italian, Spanish, and American publications/blogs including Motortrend Korea, American Art Collector, and Fine Art Connoisseur Blog, Cars Yeah!, and Where Women Create. Fannin’s artworks are currently available through galleries in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
“I have been working with Dana for about 5 years. To me, she is a digital magician with crazy skills. My paintings are usually quite large (up to 6′ long) and I use a lot of colors to make my photorealistic vehicles believable. Dana tirelessly matches the colors I’ve used to reproduce high quality giclee prints. Thanks to Dana’s hard work, I can offer fine art prints that my collectors can appreciate and enjoy. Dana is a gem, and I appreciate her dedication and professionalism. I’m so thankful that I work with her, Luci, and the whole Miller Imaging & Digital Solutions team.”

Jamie’s modern landscapes reflect life outside and often feature beloved local watering holes. She is passionate about preserving public lands and aims to make art that brings joy and connection through shared experiences.

Janis Fowler is a 38 year old artist from South Carolina. She graduated in 2008 with a degree in architecture from Clemson University, but due to the recession at the time it was one of the most difficult professions to get hired into. Fowler decided to move to Austin right after graduation to try for an architecture job, but quickly switched to bartending and waiting tables as a way to make ends meet. Art has always been a passion of hers, and as time went on she was offered spots on the walls of the restaurants she worked at to display and sell the art she was creating in her free time.
“The success of my small art business has grown organically and chaotically since that day, and it remains a wonder to me that it came to be at all. My work has also been through many stages of growth, starting out as graphite portraits and later becoming playful, colorful paintings of people and animals, sometimes combined with landscapes and psychedelic elements.”
“I’m so thankful for the places that have enabled my success, one of the biggest places being Miller Blueprint. I became a Miller customer at the recommendation of another artist back around 2011, and have been blown away by their quality and customer service ever since. Thanks to the amazing work of Dana, I’ve been able to confidently sell prints of my work knowing the quality of the prints are absolute top-tier and the colors are spot on. It is such a joy to come into the 7th street location and see Dana and Larry and the rest of the crew as well. Miller Blueprint is just the best.”
