Tak­ing in­spi­ra­tion from games, movies and even tele­vi­sion, Pa­trick’s favourite artists in­clude Hum­berto Ramos and Ryan Ot­t­ley. “I’m best known for my fan art,” he says, “I find it gives me a great rea­son to draw. With ev­ery pic­ture that I pro­duce, I learn more.

Pa­trick’s made a name for him­self with his ac­tion-packed comic style fan art, scor­ing cover fea­tures in PlaySta­tion mag­a­zines and work­ing for games com­pa­nies such as Naughty Dog, IO In­ter­ac­tive and even Sony. His work also caught the at­ten­tion of Marvel Comics, en­abling him to quit his job as a graphic de­signer to be­come a full-time artist.

1 Marvel Vil­lains

“I came up with the idea of hav­ing all the vil­lains from the Marvel movies of the past 10 years, all hang­ing out at a cer­tain bar to­gether, Stan’s bar to be ex­act.”

2 Guardians of the Galaxy

“This piece is my life­saver. Since I re­leased it in Au­gust last year, it caught the at­ten­tion of di­rec­tor James Gunn who made the Guardians of the Galaxy block­buster film, and also it brought me my Marvel ca­reer that I’ve been work­ing at for the past eight months.”

3 Aliens

“As a big fan of the Alien movies I felt the urge to do a piece ded­i­cated to Aliens, show­ing Ri­p­ley in her bravest mo­ment. I had a blast do­ing this, and learnt a few good tricks with light­ing along the way.”
