John Fellows is a graphic designer, illustrator and artist living in Denver, Colorado. Originally from the East Coast, he spent time growing up in towns from Massachussetts down to Virgina (with a little time in Germany thrown in there too), but has called Colorado home since early 2003. After graduating Drexel University in Philadelphia, John spent the next 6 years working as a freelance designer in the city and his summers living and travelling in Western Europe. After 12 years of living in Philadelphia, John packed up his things and moved to Summit County, Colorado to start a new life as a ski bum (which he was rather good at). After four years working for Keystone Resort in a variety of positions, John realized he missed the design and art worlds and moved down to Denver.
He travels constantly and spends a lot of time in the outdoors whether it be hiking, skiing, enjoying a bike ride or barbequeing with friends. Recent travels include a 2 weeks ski trip to the Swiss and French Alps, time spent on the beach of Sayulita, Mexico, and a 16-day raft trip down the Grand Canyon. All of these activities impact his work and a lot of the time, his bank account. Recurring themes such as travel and nature make constant appearances in his work. Because of the materials used and overall look of his work, it has been called “Contemporary Folk”.
