About Pete

Pete Ellison is a visual artist & illustrator producing bright and colorful graphics & screen-printed work. His creative output draws inspiration from traditional advertising graphics and the world of cute character goods. Some day he'd like to paint a mural of astronaut pandas drinking hot pink milkshakes, preferably in a vintage bowling alley.
