Calvin's early artistic career has been heavily influenced by 80's horror and thrillers by creators such as George A. Romero, Stephen King and Shinji Mikami.
As an evolving artist, he has progressed from traditional paint and visual art to digital art.
After 10 years as a photographer in fashion, music and live events playing with lighting and shadow play, he has turned his energies towards digital post-production toolsets.
Today, as a 3D artist his efforts and passion are focused on a hyper-realism art style for contribution to video game environments, modelling assets and props.
