Hi, I’m Aleks, “Petro” or “Gnomie”, Petrovitch, a happy little dude that likes to draw, surf, and hike. I graduated from the University of Hawaii, and received my Masters of Illustration from the Academy of Art College here in San Francisco. Besides selling you wax at the shop, I focus on my illustration work and brand Gnomie. My focus is to create colorful drawings designed to educate about nature and spawn creativity in children (and adults alike). Check out the best-selling and award-winning Redwood and Lighthouse Stacking Block sets and the children's board books based online at the Golden Gate National Park Conservatory.
