Hey guys!! Before I share my story with you, I just wanna say all my art is hand drawn. Alright, so my name is Leo, and I've been scribbling on just about any piece of paper in sight since I could pick up a pencil. Started out as simple doodles and copying cartoons as a lil boy. Nearing the 6th grade I was heavily influenced by 90's rap and underground hip hop and began doing graffiti. Like any other artist trying to learn a new skill, it was really bad haha, but I kept at it all throughout junior high and into high school where I eventually developed my own style. I'd spend my time drawing in classes, and at home or anywhere I could, and barely did any homework. A year or two later and i'd do graffiti every now and then but was more interested in creating my own characters. My fellow students would always ask me if I wanted to be an artist when I grew up and I always said no because I was uncertain about my future career. I figured it all out at the beginning of 2015 when I was really depressed the night before a job interview. The next day I got a job as a coach at a gymnastics gym here in Huntington Beach, California, (SCATS Gymnastics, check em out!!) where the environment just cheered me up and taught me a few new things (only worked there for a little more than three months but it was a great experience). Ever since February of 2015 i've been drawing every day. Comic book art has been a great inspiration for me as well. In my free time I study anatomy and sketch in my sketchbook. I love all kinds of art and encourage every aspiring artist, young or old, to stay on that path, or create your own.
