Vanessa Ramirez is a Serial Doodler and self taught Sculptor. A love of odd toys and resin figures led her to reignite a passion for drawing and new found passion for sculpting. Her work tends to bounce between styles both creating soulful creatures that weave their own stories as you follow them suffering through life and a distinct illustration style that uses lines and line weight to build form.
Orbital Ox was born in Baltimore, Maryland but now resides in Southern California. He grew up in Japan and Northern California. He moved down to Los Angeles to attend and graduate from film school with an emphasis in writing. He is a self taught photographer (a few cinematography classes helped) and is an avid art enthusiast. Orbital Ox loves to support talented people with warm hearts.
