Eric Jorgenson

Many moons ago, Eric Jorgenson was born in the suburbs of Chicago -- birthed with a box of crayons already held tightly in his little hands. Ever since that day, he's drawn pictures for mommy and daddy, and drawn anime characters for school friends. Now, he paints commissions for clients, paints murals, and has recently illustrated caricatures for the biography of Martin H. Greenberg.

He pursued art at St. Norbert's College in DePere, Wisconsin and University of Wisconsin Green Bay, as well as several stand-alone oil painting classes and visits to Kewaunee Academy of Fine Arts for figure painting groups; he continues to study and learn {almost} every day through practice and observation. Eric is mostly inspired by the wonder of fantasy and science fiction (and the possibilities they imply), as well as the beauty of light and color in nature. He's been significantly influenced by anime, science fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, zombie movies, and certain "fantasy" video games. Dragons, post-apocalyptic breathing machines, creatures of the night and of myth, angels, and demons (and one or two cats) roam his canvas and digital space.
