Hello from Ellen Mueller~

I have been illustrating for 15 years, contributing to magazine, book, and paper products. Before illustration, I worked in animation, my first love.

My favorite influences: Rankin Bass, Jay Ward cartoons, Tex Avery, Howard Garis, Johnny Gruelle, Lang Campbell, Lois Lenski, Mary Blair, Mel Crawford, UPA artists, Gene Deitch, Albert Aquino, Mr Magoo, Howdy Doody, JP Miller, Jerry Smath, and Ludwig Bemelmans.

Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined. If a man does not keep pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured or far away.

~ Henry David Thoreau
