Vladimir Tomin
Biodata:
I was born in beautiful city of Khabarovsk, Russia. I like to create things (motion graphics, illustration, computer games, t-shirts). I don't have any particular style but they say my sense of composition, color and proportion is easily recognizable so you can probably call it a style. For me inspiration comes from different places each time but usually a name or theme is enough to get me started. When I have a name or theme of my next piece, all I have to do is to free some space in my head and let the idea fill this empty space. This is more or less an automatic process so I'm more like a tool to bring those ideas to life. My life credo is to "be honest with yourself". Without inner honesty there will be no progress. Without progress there will be no interest. Without interest there will be nothing. Honesty is everything.

Bradley Sharp
Biodata:
For my daytime job I design magazine spreads... so what I do with vector illustrations allows me to create something far-removed from what I'm doing from nine to five. I find vector an easy tool and believe anyone can learn it quickly. I'd say my artwork is nothing more than glorified doodling. I like the logical inconsistencies of surrealism and the science fiction genre.

Arturo Delgado @ madstalfos
Biodata:
I'm from Juárez, México. I started drawing my own ideas since I was 17 or 18; when I was younger I used to be "reproducing" the pieces from other artists, this helped me to learn about anatomy, colors, composition, etc. I'm studying graphic design and working as a freelance illustrator. I've been working on some indie comic books, t-shirt designs and CD covers for local bands. Most of the time I'm inspired by rock or metal music and my favorite subjects for designs are clowns, monsters and cyborgs!

Hector Sevilla @ Elsevilla
Biodata:
From Mexico, Hector Sevilla Lujan has worked in comics, character design  and illustrations for several important companies like Nintendo, Konami, DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Image, and Blizzard just to name a few. Life in art is hard. Art can smell fear, so each day it's a battle to draw anything. Sometimes you win others you lose. Rather than talent it's a battle of perseverance and stubborness.

Natalia R
Biodata:
Born 1995, Poland. For me, humans are one of the most interesting subjects to draw; behind every face there is a soul and complex personality; it’s like looking inside them while drawing. I draw lots of my favourite metal bands’ musicians and actors and find it valuable for practice. I’m looking for my own style but still have a long way to go. Usually I draw using traditional tools but I'm determined to try digital art as well. My inspiration consists mainly of music, literature and my own feelings.

Jay Hansen @ Jaybird
Biodata:
Traditional artist / Minnesota
A uncharted realm where beauty and the plague collide, imagination is a creation without cause.
Chaos is not feared, only fed upon.
And the impossibility of transformation is only the start of a future yet to be born.

Andreas Zafiratos @ albino-Z
Biodata:
I come from Greece and I am an architect. Now on to the important stuff: I draw! I think of myself as a comic artist that also enjoys illustration. For me it all starts with a pre-existing mood. When I begin to work on a piece, I force myself into a specific mood/feeling, which I follow to the end. If art -any kind of art- can be seen as a communication medium, then mood is the raw material, while technical skill and perception are the channeling vehicles. I want to believe that some of this emotion and mood I start working with has a chance of going through. Art that is strong enough to emit a portion of the raw material it was made of, has a totally different level of impact.

Can Pekin @ Cetrus
Biodata:
I was born in İzmir, Turkey in 1987. It has been 10 years starting from fine arts high school, that I have been studying art, cartoon & animation, illustration, conceptual drawings, and most favorably; fantasy character illustration. I mostly like to draw female characters because I think there are more varieties that you can reflect on both female body and outfits including accessories etc. My drawings are distinguishable by the amount of detail I put into them because I believe that as long as you put the outlines the correct manner, details carry your drawing into a more qualified visual; a standard that I am trying to improve constantly. Lately, I have been working on children book illustrations, some advertisements as a freelance illustrator and am working in an art gallery as an assistant instructor. I am mostly inspired from artists such as Adam Hughes, Gustav Klimt, Lawrence Alma-Tadema, Jhonen Vasquez, Boris Vallejo. I am also inspired from some series and computer games such as Diablo, Game of Thrones, World of Warcraft, Invader Zim and Ragnarok Online.

Eoghan Kerrigan
Biodata:
An illustrator from Ireland specializing in the world of imagination. My favourite subjects stem from mythology and stories, like trolls, dragons, and interesting people. I’ve always been fascinated by things that don’t exist and drawing them too.  I like to tell stories with my drawings, and I hope to imbue them with a sense of believability, even if the subject is completely outlandish. I am a very traditional artist; the pencil is my trustiest tool. I am most comfortable working without reference, letting my pencil wander; it is a very liberating thing to do. But I am quite adept at various styles, from realistic, cartoon-ish and in-between. I catch on quick. 
I have recently begun to do private commissions and I would like to illustrate books, design characters and do concept art for films as part of my career.

Pedro Martinez
Biodata:
Born and raised in Spain, this guy has been drawing since he was a child. He didn't take art as a career seriously and started studying something totally unrelated, but you can't escape art when it runs in your blood. So art came back, kicked him in the balls and forced him to restart drawing stuff and never give up. He's a major in Graphic Design, but the world of advertising isn't very appealing for him, so he switched to illustration, comicbooks and concept art. So far, he has worked for small publishers like Arcana entertainment or ReNoir comics, and also for indie magazines and fanzines. He has tried entering the world of concept art with character designs for a couple animation and videogame studios, but hasn't landed a big gig yet. He also works on his own comic projects that will see the light sometime soon, records gameplays for his youtube channel and does lots of different creative things. Also he talks about himself in third person.

Sergio Lanza
Biodata:
My name is Sergio Lanza, i was born in 1985 in Brazil, and I've been a professional illustrator for more than 10 years. I worked in many areas and mediums. I consider myself a perpetual student, always trying new materials and new forms of drawing and image creating. I always worked in small enterprises, for creational freedom and autonomy to show my work and opinions wherever I want. I crossed to international market for almost a year now, and I intend to work with illustration and animation also. I have great affinity with human anatomy (mostly female), and I love working in a way that I can, even slightly, explore sensuality and erotism, ranging from a more established form to subtle, more personal tones.
