Sometime during the mid-1990s I discovered Alex Ross while frequenting a local Golden Apple comic store. I was immediately taken by his Superman Forever illustration and right then and there decided that THAT was they WAY I wanted to draw. While researching Ross I discovered many fantastic illustrators. Some include: Andrew Loomis, Haddon Sundblom, Harry Anderson, Coby Whitmore, Al Parker, Jon Whitcomb, Frank Frazetta, J. C. Leyendecker, Drew Struzan, Norman Rockwell, Basil Gogos, Greg Manchess, Ludwig Hohlwein, Everett Raymond Kinstler, Gil Elvgren, Dean Cornwell, Walter Biggs, Bernie Fuchs, Robert Peak, Jim Silke, Hajime Sorayama, Harvey Dunn, and Robert McGinnis just to name a few.
I don’t read much comics but the following artists continue to inspire me: Sergio Toppi, Lucio Alberto Ruiz-Diaz, Sean “Cheeks” Galloway, J. Scott Campbell, Alvin Lee, Ferdinando Tacconi, Bryan Lee O’Malley, Sanjulian, Rockin’ Jellybean, Jim Holdaway, Coop, Ron Embleton, José "Pepe" Gonzalez, Adam Hughes, John Buscema, Phil Noto, Travis Charest, and Robert Valley just to name a few.
I received my most relevant artistic training from Mark Westermoe, Glen Orbik, Rad Sechrist, John Watkiss, Kazu Kibuishi, and Marshall Vandruff.
