One of my favorite things to do at conventions is to walk through Artist’s Alley and check out all the talented artists there. In all media, and of all types, their art surprises, amazes, and often astounds. I choose the best of the best to approach to work with Grey Gecko, and our newest artist Ash Gonzales is no exception. Here are just a few of his pieces:
As you can see, he’s quite talented. Here’s a bit more about Ash:
Ash Gonzales, a native to Houston Texas, is a self-taught realistic artist. Working primarily with oil and pencil, his oil paintings combine vivid colors, textures and a striking look, creating a unique energy on canvas. Ash attributes much of his inspiration to comics and movies, painting portraits of his favorite characters.
A graduate of the Art Institute of Houston in computer animation, he puts those skills to work as a graphic designer during the day, and is a fine artist at night. His work can be found on his website at ashgonzales.com and at many comic conventions in Artist Alley.
All of us at Grey Gecko are happy to have Ash on the team, and we look forward to seeing his work on future covers!
