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.
