My name is Ash Russell. I am an illustrator and designer living in Minneapolis. I have always believed that the reason we live is to love, create, enjoy each others company, and help one another. I have dedicated my life to helping animals and creating art that makes me and others around me happy.


I am very passionate about the non-profit animal rescue I co-founded, MN Pocket Pet Rescue. Our goal is to provide education, training, support, rescue and adoption for small animals and their owners. 


Here are some other things that rock my socks off: knick knacks, tattoos, bright colors, cartoons, naming things, making up songs, and literally anything that I deem as "cute."
