I always loved superheroes and sci-fi as a kid. Growing up the artists that shaped me were Frazzetta, Vallejo, Mcquarrie, Kirby, Adams, Ross, Byrne, Romita the list goes on and on, so I usually gravitate towards the classic version of characters when I draw them.
My art career began years ago as a designer working In advertising as an art director and then in music where I had a company doing CD cover layout and design. So having strong background in graphic design really helps me balance and layout the pieces I create today as an artist/illustrator.
Being a fan of the “less is more” design philosophy I strive to give my work a life, energy, and realism in as simple a way as I can, using what I feel is the least amount of lines that can still convey what I’m going for.
Another thing that I feel stands me out from most is that I do everything in the process from pencils to inks, to colors, it’s all me. Whereas many other artists will just do one or the other, I do it all. Since I pretty much show and sell only at conventions, It just doesn’t feel right for me to offer up something for sale that I didn’t create from start to finish.
I try to only draw what I’m a fan of, and that’s what keeps my passion in the work. If it doesn’t excite me and make me happy I don’t do it.
Being a collector myself I try to create series and collections of art that people will want to collect, for example… my Gotham mug shot series, Portrait series (multiple themed), Noir series etc. I also try to give my customers something unique by printing my work on metal and metallic synthetic material.
