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
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..
