Hey mates!

I'm Ellen Porteus- an Australian illustrator and animator. I love making clever, bold, insanely colourful vector work best described as 'playful but ballsy.'

I work out of my studio in beautiful Melbourne, Australia, alongside my canine sidekick, Maggie. Drop us a line here!

I am represented in Australia and USA by The Jacky Winter Group.
