illustration, design, & sometimes puppets.

My name is Joey Ellis and I am an artist living in Charlotte, NC with my wife and studio manager Erin and our two boys. I graduated from East Carolina University in 2002 and have been a professional illustrator and designer ever since. I love designing characters for books, magazines, comics, games, big companies, little companies, television and everything else in between.

I also create identities, build brands, write stories, perform puppetry and all sorts of fun and exciting things. If I’m not making something, then I’m driving my family crazy. In my spare time I enjoy collecting toys, retro video games, eating snacks, watching football, thinking about eating snacks, playing with my boys and planning trips with my wife that involve snacks.
