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..

Happy New year!

I have been very busy with work these days and haven't given much attention to my site here...I have been sculpting more than drawing these days..A job I had done design work for mid last year has come around and made me a sculptor of some of the characters...short deadlines means I'm working around the clock...

BUT...

I am trying to make plans to get around to the cons this year..galleryanatom may actually show up with a booth...I will update as the time get's closer to the dates.....for those of you on Facebook i am there with galleryanatom and under my own name...

Blind Spot is still available in limited numbers...I am not going to make another run, my final decision on that..I am very happy with the book but I need my focus on one project at a time....so there it is

Thanks

Update May 23rd....

Hey everyone..As I am now very very busy with work and my time is very limited I have decided to end the options for the Special editions of Blind Spot.. Those who got them got them...I will offer the Special editions that still exist without an extensive sketch for a new base price for all Special Editions..at $225.00 US..I still have to list them which I haven't done yet.But for now if you want one let me know by email through the contact listed on the sidebar.... I am finishing the last Special Edition option 3 and that's it folks...The Special editions still exist but minus the drawing.. They will be signed with a small signature doodle...

So Again.. Just to be clear...There are still Standard Editions and Special Editions available but I am ending the drawing for each Special edition book as my time is being sucked away by much work....

 

thanks everyone
