Hello friends, my name is Craig Irvin and I'm an artist of many talents. I'm grew up in Houston TX, while attending elementary school my art teacher noticed my unique talents in drawing and prop making. At the age of 6 I was given a 16 year scholarship to the Glasscell school of arts Houston which is now called the museum of fine arts Houston. doing my time there my skills in painting and drawing increased tremendously and I was ranked top of my class for 8 years straight.
I would always find ways to draw even if I didn't have paper I would use the walls lol. Got in trouble for it too but my dad kept encouraging me to always express myself.  Long story short, my art increased even further in high school in advertising design where I won 1st place out of 24 schools that's attended across the country. After college I took a break from painting and used my skills into costume designing with EVA FOAM ARMOR PROP CREATIONS. There i spent 7 years winning costume contest from 1st to 3rd. A lot of time, preparation, and money but I got twice the amount back in winnings to provide for my family. After that i started getting costumers to ask me to build costume armor for them which was very exciting, my first one was iron woman from avengers end game, Winston from the overwatch game, genji, pharah and lucio all from the overwatch game league. I'm also getting alot of portrait traffic coming in as well lol the more the more my name is spread around right lol. Anyway so now I'm back to painting again, it will always be my first love
