Anthony lives in the Bay Area of California, and is inspired by animation production art and books as well as Japanese art books. Other influences range from portrait painters to contemporary children's book illustrators. He went to South Orange County School of the Arts in Dana Point, and attended San Jose State University's Animation and Illustration programme.
Though most of his images begin with 30 or 40 thumbnail sketches, the bulk of Anthony’s work is done digitally. He’ll often shoot reference photography once he’s worked out a composition. Then he paints the image digitally.
Anthony’s artwork is reminiscent of the Academic style of painting, but with flourishes comic book art and pulp illustration. He adapts the look and finish to whatever is most appropriate for the project and how much realism is required.
