Meet the Creator
Teddy Kelly is an artist and illustrator whose life and designs are the product of converging cultural influences. He grew up in Mazatlan, Mexico. He has been creating art since he could pick up a pen, drawing influence from both the Disney characters he’d see during childhood visits to the United States and his perspective of the immigrant-influenced culture of his hometown. Grew up immersed in the subculture of surfing and skateboarding, inspired from a young age by the skateboard art that defined this culture. Teddy moved to the U.S. after high school in search of an education, and he was fortunate that he found a mentor and friend who taught him how to conceptualize his ideas.

While attending San Diego City College, Teddy was awarded an honorable mention for Illustration by the American Institute of Graphic Arts. His work has been featured in international exhibitions alongside some fine and skates art icons who have also inspired him throughout his life.

Whether he’s creating the identity of a worldwide company or painting murals for personal projects, his inspiration comes from everyday life, his experiences with his surroundings. His art is how he shows that perspective, how he communicates and how he inspires others the way he’s been inspired throughout his life.

He lives by the mantra, “Follow the Bliss” and “Enjoy the Ride.”
