 About the Artist

" As a kid, one of my favorite memories was the first time I watched Baywatch. Another was the first time I picked up an X-Men comic. I liked Baywatch for the swimming and X-Men because I had yet to see a drawing of a man who could shoot lasers from his eyes, and till this day I credit that character and his powers for inspiring my artistic endeavors. "
