About

At the age of 18 after completing high school he joined the summer program at Cal Arts…
but the institution couldn’t hold Tony for long; he already had a vision for his life’s work. Tony
showed his impressive portfolio around the San Diego Comic-Con in 1995 and was hired by
Image Comics, a collective with a Marvel Comics pedigree, where Tony had his first encounter
with digital art. After 3 years with Image, Tony joined a San Diego company called Midway,
and spent 2 1/2 years creating video games.
For over the past 20+ years, Tony has successfully freelanced in multiple worlds: for comic
books, films, and conceptual art. His color, lighting and concept art for such film projects as
Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles has assured Tony’s reputation as a fine artist in the world of
animation. He recently completed work on the highest selling World of Warcraft comic series
in Wildstorm/DC comics history earning a spot on the New York Times best sellers list and the
only Hardback book to make that list for WIldstorm’s 18 year history. In addition he designed
promotional poster concepts for Lady Gaga’s Monsters Ball Tour. He also completed concept
art for SONY PS3 titles Twisted Metal 3, Motorstorm Apocalypse and Heroes on the Move. He recently
completed art for Mix Master Mike's Magma Chamber VR, Upperdeck's upcoming Pack of Lies TCG and 2
posters for The Crow for them as well. His latest film work on the new Ratchet and Clank (Sony, Rainmaker) CGI film released in April of 2016 as well. His current print and/or digital work can be found on projects such as Blizzard Entertainment's Hearthstone and The San Diego Comic Con Exclusive The Crow Poster for Upper Deck Entertainment. He will be releasing his first VR work for the upcoming Magma Chamber for Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys, with his friends Jonathan Winbush and Robert Buchanan in August of 2016.
