Multimedia Artist and Illustrator Juan Gomez currently a Senior Artist
at an adult gaming company...Casino slot gaming that is! He was born
and raised in Chicago's north west side near Humboldt Park. His passion
and dreams of being an artist was fueled by four decades of pop-culture,
family support and praying to the gods that one day he would see a real
live Smurf or Gremlin..."By the Power of GraySkull this guy loves the 80's!"
But the 90's led to some college learning, internets! and the beginning
of his 20 year career in the arts. Starting with comic books Juan quickly
jumped on the internet bandwagon during the "Dot Com" boom working
full time designing and creating web pages and ad banners for RollingStone.com.
Over the years since, Juan has worked freelance and full time creating
2D and 3D game art and animation for various platforms and clients
such as Nickelodeon (Spongebob, RugRats and more), Lego ( Star Wars, Bionicles and more),
Big Idea (Veggie Tales, nuff said!) and CartoonNetwork's - Harvey Birdman Attorney at Law.
Juan currently resides in a Chicago south suburb, with his wife and two children, well
technically three including the Yorkie.
