Artist | Hobbyist | Varied
My name is Alejandro. In 1986 I was born into the arms of Esther Appel. Blonde hair, blue eyes. I grew up in Oregon, shy but always playful, awkward but always friendly. Art ran through our family's blood; my mother a graphic designer, my aunt a sculptor and artist, my grandfather a wood-worker, my father a vagabond. I could always sense a wild creative spirit that hovered above us. I, like most kids that grew up in the 90's, was educated by the TV mostly, cartoons and video games. My life was very tame and dull until I could step outside and go wander the dangerous world with my friends. And when it was time to go home, back to a tasty meal and a warm bed, I turned on the TV and tried to imagine my own world on paper. I filled books upon books with my art.
Eventually I would move into the digital realm. Here I could play with color and shapes, things I was too afraid to touch with traditional media. My world began to change as I grew older, more responsibilities meant less time to focus on my art, and yet I've always managed to balance both. Explore the world, and then come back to write it all down in pictures.
Inside this DA profile you will see a range of my works, works that I feel define my life and personality. Enjoy.
