Victor (UBiv Tnomal) is a traditionally trained digital artist from the Philadelphia area. The original inspiration to pursue art as a lifelong dedication came from his father and one of his old sketchbooks that Victor found while rummaging in a closet at his parents house when he was 9 years old. This dedication to master the craft traditionally, eventually led to experimentation with digital art during the Commodore Amiga heyday starting with Deluxe Paint by Electronic Arts, followed by learning the earliest versions of Photoshop, Illustrator and Pagemaker while a desktop publishing/commercial art major in high school. Additional inspirations were added including various great masters, artists from Japan, Russia and Germany and more contemporary works from comic book artists and illustrators.
Victor is also an alumni from University of the Arts animation program and has worked throughout the Philadelphia area as an animator, graphic designer and illustrator for many years. The pursuit to master the craft is ongoing and his greatest inspiration is still the same as it was when he was 9 years old, his father’s old sketchbook.
