Mikellis grew up in a town North of Toronto, Ontario. He spent his childhood on forest walks, biking through trails, and maybe a little too much time on the internet. He works from his studio in Kensington Market, enjoys cycling, hanging with his cat Solly, and exploring the countryside on his motorcycle. He currently teaches illustration at OCAD University.
