Mex­i­can-Amer­i­can il­lus­tra­tor and con­cept artist En­rique watched a lot of sci­ence fic­tion and hor­ror films as a child. They made a last­ing im­pres­sion on him and ever since he’s been com­pelled to cre­ate strange crea­tures and char­ac­ters of his own.

En­rique de­scribes him­self as an en­tre­pre­neur as well as an artist, de­vot­ing much of his time to help­ing fel­low cre­atives de­velop new types of art sup­plies.

“I be­lieve the most im­por­tant qual­ity in art is hon­esty,” he says. “Be­ing true to yourself and to oth­ers is the way to get ahead in your cre­ative life.”

1 Dan­ger­ous Ground “This was a per­sonal project, done just for fun. I en­joy watch­ing gi­ant monster movies and wanted to cre­ate my own. I started with line art for the monster, then went into de­tailed shad­ing over time.”

2 Street Sharks “This is a paint­ing ded­i­cated to one of my favourite cartoon shows as a child. I started with a base colour, then added de­tails and tex­tures by shrink­ing the ba­sic brush. I used only ba­sic brushes on this piece.”

Wolfen­stein “This piece was done spon­ta­neously, based on a dream I had. It started mess­ily, like a sketch in paint, and I slowly tried to pull out a fo­cal point. I wanted the viewer to ex­pe­ri­ence a slight feel­ing of ten­sion.”
