Artist. Illustrator. Husband. Father. Fanboy. Nerd. Geek. Dancer. Debaucherist. That last one isn't even a word. But all me.|
Art has been my life since childhood, and I continue to serve for its place in the universe by continuing to evolve and contribute. I am in awe of the great masters and those with great potential to be. I am a student of both great impressionists and comic book illustrators. I wield a variety of media from graphite to ink to acrylic to digital to realize vision that is nurtured by the things that inspire me.
My creative influences range from the world-renowned masters to the incognito revolutionaries of the art game. Leonardo Da Vinci, Alphonse Mucha, George Perez, Jack Kirby, MC Escher, Adam Hughes, as well as other visionaries like The Watchowskis, Guillermo del Toro, and Kevin Smith are among my many influences, but I am mostly influenced by the ever-changing world around me.
A cold pint of Guinness is usually the perfect end to my day. Actually, it's several pints.
