Tricky Fish Brings in the Best: Jon Flaming

As a new restaurant in Richardson, Texas, Tricky Fish founders wanted artwork throughout the restaurant that is distinctive and true to our core. Tricky Fish is all about simplifying every aspect of your life to create moments to savor food and friends, and we wanted that to come across in the artwork.


After an extensive search, we found the obvious choice: Jon Flaming. A true Dallas visionary, Flaming understood our brand image and came through with some stellar artwork for the restaurant, menus, and more.

About Jon Flaming

Although born in Wichita, Kansas in 1962, it’s almost fate that his family moved to Texas just 6 years later. From there, Jon began to take on his southern roots, attending school at Texas State University and then opening Jon Flaming Design in 1993. His work focused on iconic Texas imagery, including collections for the Grace Museum in Abilene, Tyler Museum of Art in Tyler, and Budweiser Silver Eagle Collection in Houston. Each piece of art he did seemed to convey Texas history and culture in a new, unexpected way.

The advertising industry began to take notice, and consequently, Flaming has designed for dozens of companies over the years including American Airlines, FedEx, The John Wayne Cancer Foundation, Kellogg’s, Pepsi, Neiman Marcus, and so many more. Jon’s award-winning art has been published in many design publications including Graphis and Communications Arts.

Tricky Fish is honored and excited to have Flaming create the iconic imagery that our guests will see each time they visit the restaurant! Want a sneak peek?! Here is one of the pieces of art that will appear on the wall of our Richardson restaurant and bar:
