Ron Velasco was born in the Philippines, in 1975. His interest in Art was spawned by a fascination with animation and comic book designs, which then inspired him to begin focusing on character centered concepts. Velasco’s first set foot in the working artist’s industry when he joined Nickelodeon. In 2002, he was accepted in the Illustration program at the renowned Art Center College of Design where he was able to explore and form a sense of aestheticism through various courses in painting and drawing.
