Biography from The Illustrated Gallery:
Charles Ellis was hired to teach illustration in 1971 at the newly opened Art Institute of Philadelphia.  He remained at the school for 22 years, teaching promising pupils such as poster artist Richard Amsel and painter Jamie Wyeth, who became a friend.

Mr. Ellis also worked as a commercial artist for local advertising agencies; did illustrations for the Saturday Evening Post, Jack and Jill Magazine, The Inquirer's Sunday Magazine and other publications; and painted portraits for wealthy clients.

While studying art in Philadelphia, he worked at Taws art-supply store and attracted customers by painting watercolors in the store window. In August 1988, he again painted for the public in the window of the Gallery of the Art Institute of Philadelphia.

Ellis graduated from the Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art (now University of the Arts), where he later taught. He also studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts.

Charles F. Ellis died on October 1st, 2004 at the age of 82.
