Occupation Illustrator / Artist
Location BROOKLYN, NY
Introduction I'm a full time freelance illustrator and artist. I was born in Cocoa Beach, Florida. My Father worked for NASA at the time. Shortly after I was born, my Mom, my Grandmother, my Sister and I moved to Bordentown, NJ. Bordentown is small with a population just under 5,000 people. My days as a child were spent playing in the woods, walking along train tracks and listening to music, mostly Kiss records. My earliest memories of making art are of coloring in coloring books with my older sister Angela. My favorite book when I was seven years old was an illustrated bible that I got for Christmas. After graduating from high school, I moved to Brooklyn to attend Pratt Institute. I dropped out after a year and half. I have taken a few night courses at SVA (the School of Visual Arts) but consider myself to be mostly “self-educated”. I spend my days listening to music, visiting libraries and bookstores, and of course painting and drawing. I get most inspired when listening to music, reading, going for long walks, or visiting museums. My wife Selina Alko (who's also an illustrator) and I live and work in a little house in Park Slope, Brooklyn with our two children.
Favorite Music All the stuff the kids are listening to.
