Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
United States
I'm an illustrator primarily. I've dabbled in several other mediums and in time managed to re-convince myself that I'm really only good at drawing.

I dig the Adobe Creative Suite, I like Painter Pro, but need some time to truly open it up.

By default, being an artist goes hand in hand with being a music appreciator. So there is no production in art that is without a soundtrack, or as of late... a playlist. I'd like to include a tracklisting to the soundtracks I play to each new submission to DA.

Movies.
I freaking love classic horror flicks. Action flicks are cool, but I bore easily. I don't like slasher flicks all that much because like action movies, I bore easily. It's got to have a point to the gore & violence.

I am a musician as well as an artist, and with many other artists... we're musicians too. I love me some Hard Rock, Industrial, Hip Hop vs. Rock (or whatever you call it). I love suggestions for new music too!

Cheers!

Asdzaa Naabaahii Native American Warrior by daledriven
Asdzaa Naabaahii Native American Warrior
I wanted to create a female warrior character who is practical and based off some real people.

I call her Serena Greyeyes, aka "Asdzaa Naabaahii" (Ahst-Zah Nah-Bah-Hee) which basically means "WARRIOR WOMAN"

She's a U.S. Military veteran with buttloads of training (I've never served, only had family who've served, so forgive me for sensationalizing her military background).  Obviously she's Native American, Navajo to be specific. 

I grew up in and around the Navajo Reservation in Arizona and New Mexico.  I'm Navajo, and I don't see ANY Native American characters in comics that do us justice... when I do, it's usually so far below the radar that only those looking for the characters find it.  Even though the stories I want to tell with THIS character may never see another pair of eyes, my hope is that someone somewhere would be kind enough to educate themselves on the world outside their world.

EXCEEDINGLY out of character for the Major here, but I love adding a humorous element to knock things out of sync from time to time.  I had fun drawing this.  I haven't drawn anything for fun lately, it's been all BUSINESS and no pleasure.

If you're coming to the Albuquerque Comic Expo (www.abqcomicexpo.com) come see me in the Artist Alley at table C-19.  I'll have all three issues of REZ-LUV, original art, sketches, & prints.
