Artist link -->> Craola
-----------------------------------------------------------------
name:Greg
born in: South Bay CAlifornia
raised in:South Bay CAlifornia
school: Long Beach State
gallery shows:don't feel like listing them all
employement: Video Game artist at Activision, freelance illustrator/designer
currently living in: damn that's alot of personal stuff.
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Q - How did you get started?
A - Like alot of artists I talk to, I started when I was like 3 or 4. Coloring in books and on walls with my

crayons. Started copying the thing s I would see in cartoons as well.


Q - When did you first become interested in ART? What made you decide that you would like to pursue a

career in ART? Who or, what influenced you the most?
A - I got really serious in art whern I was a Junior in high school and started doing graffiti. It pushed

the boundaries of everything I knew and I was able to make my drawings huge. I decided that art was what I wanted

to do because I was encouraged by friends, family and even strangers that it might be something I should persue.

More than that I was and still am an art junkie. IT is almost all I think about. I love creating artwork.


Q - What advice would you give an striving artist? Is there anything you've learned now that you wish you

knew then?
A - If you are going to art school. PAY ATTENTION! even if you think you know it all.. You don't. I was an idiot and thought I could just slip by and partied most of my college days away.. The unfirtunate thing is that I did slip by and missed out on some good learning that I later had to learn the hard way.
