Artist Spotlight: Peter POP Art

In his 20+ years of working as a professional artist, Peter Pachoumis has always followed one important rule: let your work speak for itself. This rule, along with his great attention to detail and key artistic sensibility, has allowed him to complete work for brands like Disney, Star Wars, McDonald’s, D.C. Comics & more.

Even though he’s mainly known for his pop art & comic work, Pete wears several hats. When he’s not creating artwork for his clients, Pete can be found writing or teaching digital, visual and cultural art. Just recently, he had to opportunity to teach an online course for Pluralsight on how to use Photoshop CC to create powerful comic illustrations.
