Peter Cassell is an illustrator living in the San Francisco Bay Area. He approaches his work with the determination of creating intriguing composition, design and character, as well as developing images conceptually to provide a meaningful exploration into the subject matter.

He worked for over 20 years in house for a design agency, working for a variety of tech clients like Adobe (he created the iconic Illustrator 10 image, among others) Cisco Systems, Zynga, Nomadic VR, Corsair, as well as some consumer brands like Anheuser-Busch, California Olive Ranch, Capcom, Kern's, Levi's and Stanford Health Care. More recently he has pursued editorial, narrative, book, portrait and caricature, with his work accepted for 3 years straight into the Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles's annual Illustration West Show. For the most recent show, 7 of his illustrations were accepted with his portrait of John Oliver receiving a bronze award.
