Illustrator Ray Ocampo
I think art was my ﬁrst love.
One of my proudest artistic memories was winning a colouring contest as a kid. The prize was a red bicycle with cruiser handlebars, a silver banana seat, and on the side was the name, "BIG RED". I felt like I was on top of the world.
Since then, my art has grown through hard work, a multitude of inspirations, and my biggest motivator, passion.
I studied classical animation for two years at Algonquin College. Since graduating I have worked as an animator for a handful of local studios for over ten years. I started drawing and colouring in Photoshop about six years ago, for pure enjoyment. Luckily, that lead to "Super Spark", and I hope it leads to many more illustration opportunities.
Basically, I love what I do. I love creating through my drawings. I love being inspired by wonderful artwork. I love that my art is my voice, and that I'm able to share it.
Did I say " I THINK" art was my ﬁrst love? I take it back.
I KNOW it was.
