Peter Mitchell

Mitchell graduated from the Sheridan College Illustration program in 2002 and now lives and works out of Toronto. His work has been recognized by American Illustration, 3x3 Magazine, Applied Arts, and hangs in the collections of Martin Scorsese, Steven Spielberg, Paul Quarrington, and many others. His work is crude, rough, sketchy, and some might even go so far as to say unfinished at best, with sloppy lines and erasure marks and color often time slapped haphazardly around the picture plain, marking changes in structures such as roofs, walls, doors, cars, etc. The harsh line is part of what makes hi work so damn interesting, and it's a perfect example of things i wish i could produce and be ok with... we'll get there one day. Clients: LA Times, Boston Globe, City of Toronto, Enroute Magazine, Lime Design, and The Stranger.
