Booth B-6

Tom is an artist from Chicago with a wide background in gaming, comics and graphic design. As a kid he cut his teeth on making homemade comics on college-ruled notebooks with his buds. Meanwhile, aspiring to make art for a living as an adult like his comic artist heroes. After attending art school in Chicago, he worked on fighting games like Mortal Kombat 9, X and Injustice: Gods Among Us. He’s colored a few indie comic books, and designed logos and flyers for small businesses.

Tom loves to design with color when working with digital illustration, and graphic design. Lately he’s challenging himself to create pieces and books in a pixel art style, as homage to the games he grew up with in the 90s. You can usually find him head-banging to synth tunes, chugging down coffee and doughnuts: the meal of champions.
