Adrian Nelson is from Houston, Texas and a long-time lover of comics.
Im mostly self-taught and started out as a big John Byrne clone. I remember sitting in my room and just making up these characters, both backgrounds and design. Sorta like what you would see in the old Marvel Handbooks that used to come out a long time ago (laughter).
My influences consist of John Byrne (of course), Michael Golden, Jason Pearson, Art Adams, Hiroaki Samura(Blade of the Immortal),and Im a huge Naruto fan. I may not show those influences now, but they are what I aim for when I look at a blank sheet of paper. Id love to be able to create something that would make other artists take notice. Drawing comics is a demanding but fun thing and I wouldnt trade it for a regular job.
Currently Im drawing B.A.D.A.S.S.(Bureau of Alien Detection And Supernatural Sightings) and it's been fun and draining at the same time. I have the utmost respect for anyone that makes a living doing comics. I feel I get better with each page, so as the confidence builds, it's getting easier to do and the more I try to add to it. I hope you guys have fun while reading all of the Angel Comics lineup. You better...
