Kai Martin is a San Diego raised artist, born in January of 1986. He spent most of his childhood drawing, and thrived with his family's loving and constant support. Like other kids his age, he perused the latest comics, cartoons, and video games. He began realizing that he had even more fun creating his own imaginary universes, characters, and projects. The freedom to create anything he could imagine on canvas sparked his artistic passion.
Kai nurtured his talents with private art classes at Neko Press Art Studios and earned a graphic design degree from Platt College. Since then, Kai has been live painting for almost 8 years. He painted on stage with his friend's band, Silent Armada, at venues including SOMA, Chain Reaction, Epicentre, Hard Rock Hotel Las Vegas, and Rock Bottom.
He met local artists Sean Dietrich and Vincent Gordon, as well as Infusion Project head honcho, DJ Schugar. They gave him opportunities to do live painting at bars, nightclubs, and festivals in San Diego and abroad.
Currently he is booking appearances at Comic Conventions along the Western US and illustrating a tabletop fantasy card game called Enter The Lair from indie SD designers Double Action Games. Enter The Lair will have a crowd funding campaign late 2015/early 2016.
