Bio

Hi, I'm Patrick Edell, and I'm a freelance illustrator/designer based in Brooklyn, New York. My strengths lie in my storytelling and world building chops. I love solving problems visually and fleshing out illustrative systems. Let's work together on a project soon!

I specialize in editorial and commercial/advertising work, but am eager to take on any publishing, storyboarding, visual development, or in-house/contract work as well.

When I'm not at my desk, I can be found walking, biking, or jogging through the streets of Brooklyn, looking for dogs to appreciate and coffee to sip.
