About Pete

When 8-year-old Pete McDonnell first grabbed a crayon and scrawled it across a piece of paper to express himself, he unwittingly found his calling in life. As an adult Pete has worked as a professional cartoonist, illustrator, caricaturist and storyboard artist for the biggest names in advertising, comics and publishing. While he currently maintains professional clients, he now offers his talents to individuals and businesses to entertain at parties, fundraisers, trade show booths— wherever people gather to have a good time.
