After 10 years of working as a graphic designer, I have decided that it's time for me to find that courage.
My true passion has always been for drawing and entertaining, so, starting March 1 2012, I will be working for my very own illustration studio. It's a very bittersweet time as I say goodbye to friends at Hawse, but it's something I must do.
I'm very fortunate to have several projects underway, including lots of iOS development, mascot/branding work and character development. I am blessed to have a great network of friends and clients that have faith in me. It's a very exciting time for me and my family.
I look forward to being able to draw, create and entertain…. full time, you guys.

Good luck, Joey! Can't wait to see where it leads for you.
Best of Luck bro!! You will do great things!! Be Blessed!
Good luck Joey! Love your stuff. Hit me up, may have some early work for you!
Good luck Joey, I'm sure only great things are in bound to happen!
Go get 'em Joey! It's going to be a great studio.
Congrats on taking the leap. It's a worthwhile journey.
I just started my first full time job in a decade, and there are things I already miss about freelancing.
This is great Joey! Flap those wings :D
Good luck! I am sure such step will lead to good future and more positive emotions from favourite job!
Congrats, Joey! Your future will be great!
We will have to talk in the coming months. I have ... well, there are things that I'm doing that you would fit perfectly with.
If you're interested in talking about a project with me, just shoot me an email: joey-at-joeyellis.com
All the best, Joey! You can do it! :-)
Congrats Joey! I can't wait to see what you do next!
Everybody pretty much summed up my thoughts. Congrats brother! Looking forward to seeing your crummy drawings all over the place now. Are you going to offer Mr. Stevens a job at your studio. I have a feeling he'll be lonely now.
Can you please recreate my entire childhood with your style? That would be amazing. You have true talent!
@Joey Ellis I have zero fears for you as I know you're gonna knock it out of the park! the only emotions I feel is excitement, pride and okay, a wee bit o jealousy.
It'll be awesome to see even more fabulous illustration from you!
Best of luck! :)
That's awesome, Joey! Keep up your wonderful work! Congratulations and good luck!
