My name is J. Slattum, I'm an oil painter from the Pacific NW of the US. I grew up drawing, often times finding myself in trouble in school for doing so all the time. In my later education, I spent 6 years gearing myself for 2D and 3D CG to work for Lucas Arts or Pixar. That was the grand dream... until I picked up a paint brush.
I've been self-taught in all the fundamentals and techniques, referencing the old masters and seeking advice from other artist that I admire. A lot of people compare my work to Alex Grey and/or Dali. So I guess it's "visionary surreal". I just call it mind travelling. Psychonaut art.
Please let me know what you think. I'm always looking to improve, so I welcome strong critique, as well.
