Shox – Traditional and digital drawing and painting 2D/3D artist (I’am also a graphic designer for web and print). Music composer, keyboardist and singer. Videographer, director and cameraman. Photographer, photojournalist and game journalist in past.
Bio: Born in eighties in Poland. Started draw and paint as a child, make music later in high school, shoot photos and videos too. I played a lot of video games in my life, started from Arcade Machines and Atari/Commodore/Amiga in 80/90′, then play on PSX, PS2, PS3, PS4, Dreamcast, Xbox One, N64, Gamecube, Wii, Wii U and of course PC, now i play sometimes on my mobile phone. The last game i finished it Witcher 3 on PC. I like Manga & Anime, my best series is HunterXHunter, Dragon Ball, Bleach and Studio Ghibli movies. Last favorite Anime is JoJo Stardust Crusaders, Atack On Titan (Shingeki No Kyojin). When i was a young i read a lot of comic books from Marvel and DC like X-Men, Superman, Batman, Spawn, and i think, then i decided to draw (favorite comic book artist is Jim Lee). I don’t have any success in art yet because i lost a lot of time working as physical labourer, and in graphic design (for print and web), web building and photography. Now i change my priority and thinking. My true love is compose music, drawing and painting and i need to do everything to make music for people, games, movies, create concept arts, characters, worlds for games, animations, comics, illustration for books etc. Finally my goal is to be the best in this what i’am doing, i do not accept to be out of the podium. This is simple, your’e a winner or your’e a loser. Hard work ahead of us all!
