Aaron Little

Freelance illustrator / graphic designer

Torrance, CA, USA
Since I was a kid, I’ve been chasing more than one passion, and I just never stopped. I began
my college career as a music performance major before switching to illustration. After
graduation I was lucky enough to land a job at NBC Universal as an environmental/graphic
designer, where over 2 years I absorbed a generous helping of knowledge and skills. After
Universal I freelanced for a while before accepting a short-term position as head graphic
designer at an Ethiopian film company, which meant moving to Ethiopia for a while. The job
lasted 4 months---I ended up staying in Ethiopia 2-and-a-half years. I mostly did contract work
as an illustrator, graphic designer, and sometimes writer, while playing with my band evenings
as a trumpet player and vocalist.

I have only recently returned from Ethiopia and am excited to jump back into the art and
design scene in the States, armed with new experiences, instincts, and insight. I’ve been fortunate
thus far to have had a career nearly as diverse as my own passions. Enjoy!
