Hola! My name is Gonzalo Alvarez and I am a 23 year old Mexican American illustrator and game designer from Port Arthur, TX and I am currently working on a BFA in Drawing at Lamar University in Beaumont, TX. My projected graduation is fall 2017.
I create quirky characters and whimsical worlds for comics, illustrations, and video games and my style has been influenced by the grotesque yet charming culture of Mexico that I grew up with. With a traditional artist background but a love for video games growing up, I treat my games as a whole through easy to learn, hard to master, and meaningful gameplay mechanics alongside thematic and engaging artwork towards creating a truly memorable experience.
Through my strong leadership skills I work towards becoming a successful Creative Director of my own indie game studio.
My current projects consist of a Mexican fantasy comic, The Legend of Polloman and a prehistoric hunting indie game, Paleo Hunter that you can follow on my social media and website.
If you are interested in commissions for a project, or just simply saying hello, feel free to send me a message and or email!
