After a career illustrating books and magazines, the impending birth of his son inspired Mike Parker to think bigger — much bigger. He painted a mural with a host of friendly faces, including a bear to protect little Jackson from monsters, birds to sing him to sleep, and a moose that... well, just looks kinda silly. It created a whole new level of interactivity that goes beyond storybooks, and it changes and grows as fast as Jackson does.
Out of that experience, lello was born. With the help of Mike's wife, Erika, and input from Jackson and baby sister Sadie (who mainly just flails her arms with approval), we create murals, birth announcements, t-shirts, and all kinds of artwork for kids, big and small. We'll work with you to come up with ideas, or let your imagination be the guide.
