Pete Bastiansen (1929 - 2015)

Don Phillip (Pete) Bastiansen was a highly gifted creative executive at the Campbell-Mithun Advertising Agency in Minneapolis and was responsible for one of the versions of the famous Hamm's Bear images.  

 

He later started his own company called Abercrombie & Bastiansen.  He was an illustrator by profession, but he also loved to paint.  

 

Pete is remembered as a wonderfully talented artist with a unique style, and a kind, caring and joyful spirit.
