My name is Tristian and I am from the great state of Texas. I am happily married to the most awesome woman who pushed me into submitting my designs. We have three amazing daughters and I hope that we can inspire them to pursue their life's passion. I started doing design work due to being laid off from my job at the time. It's led me this far so I can't really complain. For fun, we enjoy playing lots of different board games. I am also in the process of building my own arcade machine which is more challenging than I thought, but very rewarding. I'm really up for anything BBQ with friends, playing video games, bowling, enjoying the drive-in theater we have here. All good stuff!.
What was your first job? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
I would always be pulled along with my dad to help him install central a/c in houses. My first awesome job was working the local video rental store, The Video Connection. Loved that job. Watching new movies and playing video games all day!
Who was your favorite comic book/movie/cartoon character as a kid?
Comic book: Superman. Movie: Adventures of The American Rabbit. Cartoon character: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
What was your "break through" moment you knew you made it as a designer/illustrator?
I wouldn't say that I've made it but I know that I'm on the right track. My initial design for 'Coldest In The Galaxy' was the first design I submitted and I was pretty pumped when others saw potential for it.
If you were not an artist, what would you be?
I would like to be involved in creating video games.
What's the strangest thing you've drawn?
A rubber duck.
Right now I’m obsessed with…...
Trying to build my own arcade.
Really terrible movie that is your secret guilty pleasure?
The Guyver starring Mark Hamill.
What super power would you have?
Being able to fly. At times, I can control my dreams and I'm always flying.
You and one other person on a deserted island, who is it?
My buddy, Chris Joyce. We could figure a way off that island...somehow. Or just a fight to the death!
Wars or Trek?
