About me...

Hello there! Well about me, hmmmmm..... The process of filling a blank page with lines, curves, colors etc... is an awesome feeling. I love fantasy art and my favorite artist in that genre is Boris Vallejo. I also admire artwork from Jim Lee, Art Adams, Todd McFarlane, Greg Capullo, Joe Mad, J Campbell, Fernanda Chiella etc....My first "good" drawing, if memory serves me right, was a pinup of SpiderMan. I think I was 10 years old when I illustrated SpiderMan with blue, black and red pens. I shared this to my dad when he arrived from work around 1am.  I frequently waited for him in the kitchen to share my drawings when he was munching away his "dinner". Those were beautiful moments that I will never forget. My parents were always very supportive of my artistic goals and guided me to attend Fiorello LaGuardia High School of Performing Arts. I never applied to SVA, Parsons or F.I.T because I fell victim to my insecurity. Negative people steered me away from following my artistic dreams. Many said, "You cannot make a living doing art..." and suggested to do something else. Therefore, I got a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science, got married, had kids, got my Masters Degree, etc... I consider this time to be a sabbatical leave from doing regular artwork. I did very little artwork with all that was going on. I did some doing pin ups and designs for some folks which never followed through which eventually led to artwork that never saw the light. My wife and kids have been very supportive in my artistic endeavors just as my Mom and Dad were during my childhood. I bless all for standing by me with their continuous support and love. At this point in my life I come to realize money is not everything. Always follow your heart and if your heart is telling you to keep doing artwork then do it! Happiness is the key to success for you and all that surrounds you. :) Like a wise man once said, "The biggest adversary in our life is ourselves. We are what we are, in a sense, because of the dominating thoughts we allow to gather in our head. All concepts of self-improvement, all actions and paths we take, relate solely to our abstract image of ourselves. Life is limited only by how we really see ourselves and feel about our being. A great deal of pure self-knowledge and inner understanding allows us to lay an all-important foundation for the structure of our life from which we can perceive and take the right avenues." Can you guess who said that? If not Google it! :)

Thank you,

Wilson Matute
