In a practice devoid of ego and restraint, the Claytonbrothers develop intense compacted narratives on an intuitive basis. Rob andChristian Clayton seldom work on the same canvas at the same time, or discussof their projects during making.

    • Jesse Ellico

      First and foremost, Jesse Ellico believes that you have to have FUN at your job/career and works hard to bring fun and accomplishment to the workplace whether it is the office, hangar, or the classroom. He has done a multitude of pretty cool things from working on the B2 bomber, to teaching at ArtCenter and Otis, to racing motorcycles in the Baja 1000. Airplanes and engineering are his passion. As a Mechanical Engineer, he is a "hands on guy" who loves to take things apart and then, sometimes forgetting how to put them back together again! Building a model of an idea that you have is an essential part of the narrative of describing your creation. It all comes down to the satisfaction that you get once you finish the job and can say, "Hey! I made that!"
