Pete Ware aka 17th & Oak

United Kingdom

I’ve been putting pencil to paper for as long as I can remember, drawing whatever my mind could muster up. Creativity is as natural to me as breathing so I always knew that I wanted to be a professional Artist. I have to admit though, it was my second choice of career path. I’m still working on becoming a Ghostbuster.

My first steps onto the creative industry started in 2004 where I became a Graphic Designer working for various agencies. In 2012 I decided it was time to fly the coop and return to my roots as an Illustrator.

17th & Oak (my creative alias) mixes my unique illustrative style with the oodles of design knowledge I’ve acquired over the years. Taking influence from the world around me and combining it with a steady diet of pop culture that reflect my passions for movies, typography and music.

I’ve had the good fortune to work with companies such as Universal Pictures, Ben & Jerry’s, Riot Games and Fandango as well as being exhibited all over the world including Paris and the 2015 San Diego Comic Con.
