Brandon Sopinsky

 

Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

I was born in Southern California, 1984. Currently living in Los Angeles

 

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I get it from my mom. I have always had an urge to draw, I used to practice by drawing all of my Marvel Masterpiece cards,I also used to win a lot of grocery store coloring contests. Now its just a great way to relax and zone into another world, the best is getting lost in an artwork and losing track of time.

 

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

I don’t really have a favorite skateboarder, I grew up riding bmx and loved watching Tony Hawk break records, like the 900. But I would say any Bulldog that can skate is my favorite.

I once got in trouble for wearing a World Industries shirt to school that had the devil dressed as Uncle Sam and said, "I WANT YOU, TO BURN IN HELL", my middle school did not approve.
