Born and raised in the suburbs of L.A, Erik has been drawing crummy doodles since as far back as he can remember. Despite all the warnings from his family to not become an artist, he decided to pursue it anyway. Since then, he has been working as a freelance illustrator and character designer. He enjoys creating stories and mysteries within surreal illustrations, hoping to dive into the human psyche and create connections. He’s also a pretty huge nerd, and eats sushi at least once a week. Mmm, ebi.
