Brent Baldwin


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


Born and raised in Western North Carolina, where I am still a resident. Currently living and working in the Asheville, NC area.



What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?


I started drawing as a little kid. Not sure anything drew me to it. It's just something I've always done. I've turned it into a career as a graphic designer/illustrator. By day, I'm the graphic designer at a local screen printing shop.



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


I was a skater when I was a teenager. Not a very good one, mind you. Terrible balance. Spent a lot of time looking through copies of Thrasher and Transworld as a kid, admiring the board art. Always loved Steve Caballero.








Who are your biggest influences? 


My drawing style is influenced by comic book illustrators, particularly people who rely heavily on brushes, like Fabio Moon and Becky Cloonan.



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


 Inks, paints, digital illustration, and screen printing.
