THE ART & GRAPHIC STYLE

 

Almost every artwork starts with a hand sketch, whether it is on paper or on a drawing pad. The sketch itself dawns from an idea or just a quick experiment.

Once a sketch or idea is chosen for the next phase, a cleaner line drawing is done. The line drawing's overall composition is only a starting point, as it is likely the final composition of the artwork itself may change over time.

When the color is applied, it is done digitally, but every shape, color and detail are "hand-crafted", as in, I literally use the drawing pad to cut and shape each piece, set each color and place each detail.

 

MY STORY & BACKGROUND

I started drawing at the age of 3. My earliest memory of drawing is sketching the large Ford trucks that drove around the neighborhood. During my elementary years, I would stay at my grandparents' farm afterschool, which resided 30 minutes south of SeaTac International Airport. I vividly remember seeing the loud and proud Boeing 747-100s rising into the sky, almost seemingly at an incredibly slow pace due to their size, and then banking west to head to Asia. They were so notoriously loud, but beautifully polished with their bare-metal liveries.

During the same time I also lived in close vicinity to the McChord Air Force base in the Tacoma area, which catered to the old C-141 Starlifters, C-130s, various fighter jets, and even the occasional B-2 Spirit. Seeing those B-2 bombers fly low overhead definitely startled me, for I had yet to realize a triangle could fly.

In high school, I took the flight program and studied advanced science and mathematics behind flight, along with a brief course in flight communications and the basics of flying a Cessna 172. During college, however, I studied automotive design as my interest was more in art and industrial design. While my pursuit in an automotive career ended, I had acquired quite a bit of skills, mostly self-taught, that assisted in an aviation industry occupation.

I joined the industry as a graphic designer and marketing manager for an airport ground operations company. Projects focused on marketing materials and branding assets, in addition to poster art to showcase the operations at each nationwide station.

For a very long time, I had struggled to find a way to sell my art, whether the issue was the artwork itself, the subject matter, or the challenges of starting up a business. Working on the marketing posters for my day job gave me the idea that I can create my own aviation art and sell them through my own business. After many months of preparations, field research, brainstorming and compiling artwork, Volitant Visuals was born.
