About Len Peralta: (source: http://www.lenperalta.com/about/)
My name is Len Peralta and I am an Internet cartoonist.
I believe in many things. Ghosts. Elves. Bigfoot. But most of all, I believe in
making art affordable for everyone.
I’ve been very fortunate to do some interesting illustrations. I’ve drawn princes throwing up. I’ve drawn Internet rock stars dressed up in skin-tight catsuits. I have illustrated a few books. I’ve drawn art for a card game about medical malpractice. Even the New Yorker has shown off my stuff.
I’ve drawn hoboes and molemen and superheroes and video game characters. You know, all the stuff that would end up in the margins of your notebooks in grade school, high school and college. Somehow I’ve managed to eek a living out doing these things. No one is more amazed at this fact than I am.
One of the things I love about what I do is that I can wake up every day and never know what my pencils and art pens will be drawing that day. It’s almost as if they leave my drawing table at night on mad adventures to bring back incredibly geeky booty for me. I love them for that. Even though they are just inanimate objects.
If you like my work, please consider purchasing a piece of art for yourself I will gladly draw you a monster or perhaps even a twisted caricature of yourself. You could even hire me for a bigger project. And yes, while I do like goofy and interesting art, I do draw other things that aren’t geekish and strange. Just ask me.
Thanks for being interested in my work enough to read this. I appreciate all the support and encouragement I have been given about my art. If it wasn’t for your kind words, I’d probably be selling pants to old men.
TOOLS I USE:
2H and 4H Pencils. Watercolors. Faber-Castell Pitt Pens (size B, mostly). Micron pens for details (Size 005, 01, 02 and 03). Prismacolors. Wacom Tablet. Mac G5. I use any kind of cardstock I can find and smooth Bristol board for bigger projects.
