I’m really inspired by other great artists such as David A. Smith, Aaron Horkey, Joe A. King, and the list goes on.

I like to keep my artwork black & white. I typically use graphite, ball point pen, fine liners, and watercolor.

My main focus is to create something complex and super detailed. To create something that I’m proud of.
Q5: What is the main color of your art and why?
As mentioned before, I like using black and white because it has the most contrast. I don’t feel like colors is one of my strengths. I do like to apply digital color because of the lovely “ctrl+z”.

I would like to work larger, more details, and possibly more detail. I plan on fusing different animals, elements, and allowing myself to grow as an artist.

The first work was inspired by Iain MacArthur. I feel like my style ans evolved to be more me, and less like anyone else. I also like to think that my style is more clean and precise now than how I worked before.
Q11: What is art for you? Escaping from reality or the essence of life?
Art is my calling. It’s my purpose in life. I’m put on earth to create artwork and hopefully make life a little more beautiful in the process.
