Michelle – A former graphic designer gone rogue and the daughter of an engineer–utilizes that background to create three-dimensional art with a mid-century modern flair. She uses bold sculptural shapes, mixed with an element of surprise, to convey both her love of abstract forms and her sense of humor. Michelle begins her art by visually translating her sensations and perceptions into “a story with no words”. This sets the tone and creates her goal. She describes it as “visually engineering a solution and then adding an unexpected twist”. This process started when she was a wee tyke building architectural sculptures out of toothpicks, and segued into her present mid-century modern work. Like a rolling stone, Michelle gathers no moss. She sometimes talks like a pirate, and knows how to stand on her head.
An alumni and graduate of the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, Joey was born in Taiwan and moved with his parents and sister to the U.S. when he was 15. His art reflects influences by prominent and obscure artists as well as influences by the Southern California lifestyle and culture. When not painting or sketching, Joey enjoys independent films, surfing, video games, and traveling.
Francisco Herrera was born in Campeche, Mexico. He started his career in 1994, drawing characters for style guides at Disney Consumer Products, but quickly transitioned to the American Comic Book industry where he had the opportunity to work on character design for several animated and feature films in the United States, France and Mexico. Since then Francisco has released various sketch books and hard cover books, offering tips on how to design characters in three different languages and has the opportunity to continue his work for notable franchises including Marvel and Disney.
