I was influenced at an early age by Comic Book art. At the age of 10, I became an avid collector and would spend hours studying the lines on the pages. It would take another 5 years or so before I would be entranced by the oils of Frazetta and the inks of Berni Wrightson. As my interest in Comic and Fantasy art grew, it would become entrenched in my soul after reading Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings.
After high school, I discovered RPGing and spent a lot of time playing first edition D & D. Actually, I would spend most of the time eyeing all the artwork in the manuals and I came to the pre-mature conclusion that I could do better than the artwork I saw in those books and modules. I decided to try and school myself in Fantasy Art, as I was broke and, after too many frustrations, found employment to sustain me while drawing away evenings and weekends. A few years later, plus marriage (to a very understanding woman) and children, I finally decided to plunge in again and find myself here, illustrating in the RPG industry. To this end, I will take it even further and see an unlimited future ahead.
Touching on influences again, I would discover many throughout my life that I feel have enriched my artistic expression, including H.P. Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos and Howard’s Conan from the literary world. Franklin Booth (an inspiration for Wrightson), all the artists comprising “The Studio”, Roger Dean and more recently, Hellboy’s creator, Mike Mignola, making up a short list of artisitic influences.
