Everyone say hello to Seth Ellison, our new Copywriter!
From an early age, Seth wanted to be an artist. Of what sort became a creative quest that would span over two decades. His childhood, in West Virginia, was spent compulsively drawing, obsessed with aspirations of becoming a Disney animator. Spending his teens as a graphic novel penciller, by his early 20s, money suddenly became very important and so he resorted to illustration. After visiting the Louvre in Paris, he said “Screw it, I’m doing what I want”, and, against his family’s wishes and good advice, settled on fine art painter. Graduating from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2009, with his Bachelor of Fine Arts, Seth moved to Philly to attend The University of the Arts in pursuit of his Master of Fine Arts degree. There, after writing a million essays—and one very long thesis—he discovered a love of writing that had long been dormant. Having enough of city life, Seth moved his wife and two children to the laid back town of Myrtle Beach, SC, in hopes of gaining some introspection and sanity, somehow winding up a copywriter for Smokingpipes.com.
