Inspired at the young age of 5, Drew developed an appetite for the arts to bring form to his already emerging creativity and budding imagination. He began his journey to capture not only the magic, but the method behind the comics, films, and animation programs which enchanted him as a child.
At his local high school, Drew was awarded a scholarship to attend ‘The Ryman Program for Young Artists’ after winning a regional-wide art contest at the age of 16. The weekly program was held at the University of Southern California (U.S.C.) campus within the Fine Art Department by several elite artists. It was through this program where Drew received life changing mentorships from many acclaimed professionals, whom worked closely with him to nurture his gifts and further his understanding of the theories and methods of illustration.
Drew was accepted to many of the best art schools in California, however, college was unattainable for him financially. Instead of quitting on his dream of becoming an artist, he adopted a doctrine of self-education, and began schooling himself to enhance his skillset as an illustrator.
After a few years of hard work and dedication, he started receiving offers to work on projects in the entertainment and media industry. As he broadened his experience and continued to develop an already impressive portfolio, he was also building a reputation as a serious talent.
Drew hopes to continue his journey of breaking past the boundaries of his creative limits, evolve his abilities, and sign onto more exciting projects within the entertainment industry. His greatest ambition is for his work to capture the imagination of his audience, but more importantly, he hopes his art/actions will inspire everyone to pursue their dreams.
