After studying Fine Art at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and graduating from Columbia College, Ted Gadecki began his illustration career working with agencies and studios to create packaging artwork for such companies as Quaker Oats, Morton Salt, Frito-Lay, Miller Beer, and many others. He moved to Portland, OR in 1997, and continued illustrating while making the digital transition with Photoshop and Illustrator. An avid motorcyclist and car enthusiast, Ted produced a series of limited edition Giclee prints, and was licensed with Porsche A.G. and Shelby Cobra. To further achieve realism, Ted now works primarily in 3D with Autodesk Maya.
