Today we’d like to introduce you to Jorge Meza.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
My background is in illustration and fine art. I work in mixed media and acrylic. I have always been passionate about art and drawing. Drawing has always been my source of entertainment. I still have a collection of drawings that I made from my childhood.
More recently, backpacking has been a great interest of mine that has fueled my work. I enjoy including this journey as part of my creative process and collect inspiration from the entire experience. From hiking through natural environment, looking over beautiful vistas that I have climbed through/heading towards and even packing my gear.
I use these experiences in nature to help create my visions and landscapes.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I have run into many challenges but the ability to find solutions, create opportunities that make the work more interesting. I honestly don’t think there is a better way to learn and advance.
My current challenge comes in the form of personal obligations and a busy schedule. The discipline to make time for my art is a consistent decision I have to make. It’s about taking time for what is important.
All one has to do is keep at it, eventually, progress will be made, milestones are hit and goals achieved.
Please tell us about Jorge Meza.
I am a fine artist and illustrator. I provoke conversations through artwork. I enjoy generating work that “scratches my own itch” and resonates with people. Creating work that I would for myself while making other people happy is a blessing. I pour myself into my artwork and have an obsession with detail/perfectness.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My mom completely surprised me one day and took me to Comic-Con in San Diego. I had no idea where we were going or even what Comic-Con was at the time, but I would always draw from my favorite book “How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way” (by Stan Lee and John Buscema).
I feel like there wasn’t even internet back then so I have no idea how she found out about this event. I was able to meet so many heroes and artists. I still have a binder full of signed drawings, posters, and comics from that day. This day has always stood out and was really special to me. I was probably about 8 years old.
