Gloria Ordaz

I grew up in San Jose, Ca (The Bay Area). While growing up in such a cultured community I have always been intrigued with the local art. I observed many different artists while still being a small child. I started to admire street art as a teen, mostly loving the different style of graffiti. Read more>>

I’ve been drawing since I could hold a pencil. My father was a technical illustrator for General Dynamics, and my mother acted, did stage makeup and painted. I always wanted to do something art related, but figured it was a pipe dream, so I started working construction after of high school. Read more>>

There are two luminous forces I could never imagine my life without: sign language and music. Luckily, both of my gigs (I’m an interpreter and a musician) allow for a great deal of freedom, so I’ve had the opportunity to live in some interesting places including New York City, San Diego and Hawaii.

I began tattooing in 1993, it has been a long and difficult road, but I’m still here doing what I love six days a week. Tattooing is my life and when it comes to my clients I think they’re the best, I really appreciate that they come to me, even though they have a vast choice of tattoo shops. Read more>>

When I was a kid I believed I was an alien. If I could only train these “human” fingers to draw, I thought, I could create maps from my sparse memories, make images of my true body (eight feet tall, with dragon wings, I think). So, art is a way to record what is deepest or verbalized within me, to make it external. Read more>>

Marissa Kay

As a kid I got put in time out for coloring on the walls. As a teenager I got in trouble for drawing during class time. As a college student I always tried to tone down my painting style. Now as an adult I get sought out to permanently tattoo people the way I see fit. To be fair I never really quit coloring on walls; I just learned to be a little more slick and not do it behind my living room couch. Read more>>

Harrison Weathers

My story is pretty simply. A small-town kid from Boonville, Missouri that drew all the time, and was just looking for a way to make some money doing so. I drew caricatures for a while at Six Flags St. Louis, and eventually moved to Warrensburg, MO (University of Central Missouri) to study Graphic Design and Illustration. Read more>>

Maria Lozano

It all started when I was fourteen years old. My freshman year of high school taking a photography class and then eventually till my senior year. Learning to develop my own negatives and putting them onto paper in the darkroom. The art of perfecting dodging and burning of each image was a challenge and fun in itself. Read more>>

Karl Cossio

Being a nerdy, introspective kid, I always found myself drawn (so to speak) to illustration. When I was little I would sketch out scenes and creatures, continuing to do that all through my life. As the years passed, I would always come back to drawing when I felt the urge to create. Read more>>

Cari Coleman

I was raised in the tiny town of Byron, Ga. It was just my mom, my sister, and me against the world. From an early age, I knew I didn’t quite fit in. My attraction to the same sex and tendency toward the macabre as an aesthetic prevented me from relating to most people I encountered in that small, southern community. Read more>>

Alessio Ricci

I think I’ve always been an artist. When I was a little kid, I used to draw a lot of caricatures and Walt Disney cartoon characters. I became interested in tattooing when I was 16 after I watched my best friend get his first tattoo, which was a tiger on his shoulder. Read more>>
