Jim Lee, Humberto Ramos, and many smaller artists.
What would you call your art style?
I would call myself a freelance illustrator with a comic/anime vibe.
What medium do you prefer?
Lately I prefer digital mainly for cost reasons, but I love ink and marker work when I have time.
What your favorite piece of art you've done?
My favorite piece was actually a portfolio I made of Captain Planet comic pages that was looked at by Ale Garza and Jim Lee to give me tips.
Do you have a place that inspires you?
Coffee shops usually help me get relaxed and in the mindset to draw.

I don’t have a favorite but I always like going to them.
Anything else you would like to add?
