Raised in a small town outside of Pittsburgh PA, Rich Kelly grew up with an affinity for nature, steel and a baseball team that 'hasn't been good since 1992'. Going against the advice of some of his illustration professors at Syracuse University, Rich majored in illustration and graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2007. He has called Chicago home since 2008, where he rides a bicycle everywhere and draws everyday. Rich has been making posters since April of 2010, working for bands such as The Black Keys and The Flight of the Conchords. He has quickly made a name for himself within the gig poster scene after making only a handful of posters.
