Born in '83 I've always felt like I got some of the best childhood artistic experiences. with cartoons on TV like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, The Real Ghostbusters & Master of the universe. So many opportunities for reference through Topps trading cards before the internet also, and the amazing cover art for some of the 80's & 90's video game cover art. I was definitely a child of the action figure, video game and bubble gum card era.
After High School, music took over and i traded art and collecting to pick up guitar, and had minor experiences playing live and recording original music.
in 2002, everything took a back seat to starting a family and starting a handful of businesses, of which Glass Surface Coatings became the most rewarding.
at the end of 2016, whilst on End of Year break, i took some drawing tools onto a cruise ship, and spent increasingly more time trying to get back some of the drawing skills i had previously left behind, and in April of 2017 my work was noticed by a well known UK illustrator, who passed me onto the Art Director at Topps, and I havent looked back.
