SNAKEBITE_CORTEZ_WORDPRESS_DIGITALPAINT_BANNERSThe job that started it all for me as art as a profession, meaning I was being compensated for my time and art, was coloring comic books for one of the sister studios that was collectively Image Comics when they first hit the scene in the early 90’s.

I was exposed to programs that were being used to create worlds in color, digitally. A great deal of my portfolio consists of this type of work because while I was working in different art fields I always had one foot in this world. Creating stories. This world has a special place in my heart and I will always be apart of telling stories. Creating worlds and characters. Presenting mystery and enjoying watching people’s personal experience with discovery.

Plus it is one of the funnest playing fields outside of music and video to collaborate on. Working with others is the foundation of my personal evolution.

So check out my Animation, Comic Books and special section GIJoe categories. I’m sure you’ll find something you dig. I worked with some of the best artist in the industry which totally influenced my other skill sets. I’ve been blessed.
