About me

Professional:

I am designer of living things for film,animation and games.. I am a sculptor who draws and a painter who sculpts...In my opinion there is a destinction between a designer and an illustrator. Although to be a designer you have to be able to illustrate but not all illustrators are designers and some Illustrators are far better at illustrating than any designer...Illustrators can fool producers with pretty pictures but not all designers are as fortunate and thus the fighting nature of a true designer. We are not politically correct in our manner or our ideas. But we are constantly searching for innovative ideas. We live in this world and are sometimes blinded and way too far in to be accessible to corporate art houses, Fx houses and studios of all kinds...My goal as a designer/illustrator is to always bring something new to the table and as little of "something that has been done" as possible..I guarantee this effort but not the final product.. that's up to you and how much you listen to me

Personal:

Originally from the East Los Angeles area I now live in Northern Calif. with my wife of 25 years. The open space and cool air suit me well and have subtly influenced my work. I have always gravitated towards the surreal, whether I was old enough to know what that was or not. The need to be original and unique, probably stemming from adolescence, made me seek out the weirdest and wildest things that an innocent minded kid could conjure up.... By high school my tastes were being split in 2 with the pop culture interest I had in film and my interest in fineart through surreal imagery and artwork from the rennaisance. After gratuating from high school I took life drawing classes at the local community colledge in preperation for an extended education at a big university. I remember being asked for a self portrait and I didn't have an interest in simply drawing my face. So I drew the way I felt. My approach to that assignment really landmarked for me a mode in how I would handle future professional projects. Representational art wasn't my goal as an artist. Abstracting with form is how I make choices with my layouts and the designs of the elements that make up the layouts themselves. Inspiration for me is internal. The work on this site is the kind of artwork I make for myself. It comes from inspiration through my faith in Jesus Christ which is internal. My artwork is the external expression of my internal inspiration. I am still evolving with my personal work, thankfully...I see changes occuring with my work which are very interesting to me and hopefully to anyone who is interested. Even though I have a professional career that is almost 30 years old..I don't feel like I've "arrived". On the contrary I feel like a perpetual student... always learning and needing to study..

"Blind Spot

Hi everyone,...

Got some news. Amidst this hurricane that is my life I was able to find some time to focus and "Blind Spot" is finished...Blind Spot is the book of all the images that I've been showing in galleries in the last 2 -3 years...most are here for sale as prints...Blind Spot is an album, a fine-art edition that will include the rough drawings, poems and the final print images.  Also there are images that have not been seen that I made during this time that will be included as well.. After working with Ridley Scott on "Prometheus" he was kind enough to write a dedication..

 

oh and last thing....This will be a limited edition..it will be a first come, first serve kind of thing... I don't plan on making a second run for this book....

   I may start the a pre-order process in the next week or so..For now if anyone would like to shoot me an e-mail to secure your space in line that'll be fine (check the contact link on the side bar)..all books will be signed but the first 200 will have a sketch inside as well.....anyway for now here is the front cover and one new image from the book....This is my first fine-art book of others to come...thanks for all the support thus far....

Hey everyone! So the workshop went very well...I had a great time with everyone that attended...A special thanks to Andrew who I would not have been able to do it without...I'm not much of a talker with the masses and so I probably wouldn't have done it without his help...I will post images later as I get them.....

update

- Hello everyone ..it's been a while...yes the same song..I've been really busy with work...a couple of new things I can talk about..Next week I will be giving a sculpting workshop at the "Anatomy tools" space with my good friend Andrew Cawrse. Sorry it sold out before I was able to tell anyone about it (which is beyond cool and humbling). We'll see how it all goes next week....I will post some pics next week (possibly)...

- also here's a link to an interview by Mloveizm magazine...

- Been sculpting a bit more these days finally. I'm finally getting the time..."Blind Spot" (working title) has been on hold. Too many reasons why it's been on hold. The good thing is that there will be more content for it..so it's evolving to be more than just a book on prints.....but there it is......thanks for all your patience........

 

back with more later
