Basically I'm just a weird guy making his way through a weird world with my weird art.
I'm a story writer, as well as a visual artist, an animator and a video director. I love making any kind of art that conveys an idea, and I love moving mediums.
I grew up in a small town without much in the way of artistic enthusiasm. My father got me started with art when I was very young, and I haven't been able to stop since. When I was around 13 years old, I really wanted to try my hand at video, and then of course get famous on youtube. Of course that has yet to happen, but I love filming still and I am not about to give up my dreams of producing thought-inducing stories.
As of currently (July 2014 for any of you future readers) I have just graduated high school, and I'm on my way to college in the fall.

7W: The Asteroid Belt by TopHatTruffles
7W: The Asteroid Belt
Are you looking for a vacation but don't want to limit yourself to one location? Are you looking for an adventure that you'll never forget? Look no further than 7 Wonders7 Wonders cruise liners have stations on every colonized world in the Sol System, and are ready to take you and your family on the trip of a lifetime. Pick your package and see either the seven natural or industrial wonders of whichever world you stand with. Schedule a premium vacation and book a trip across worlds to see the seven natural wonders of the Sol System, starting with the great Geysers of Enceladus and ending at one of Earth's most beautiful vacation Islands. 

7W Premium Destination No. 4: The Asteroid Belt
Our journey continues as we move out of the realm of the Gas Giants, and towards the Terrestrial Worlds. In between these two realms is a massive ring around the sun: The Asteroid Belt. A vast sea of rocks stretch across the inky sky, far into the distance until the figures turn into points indistinguishable form stars. Our ship will land on the largest body in the belt, the dwarf planet Ceres. There, you and your fellow guests will be able to enjoy the luxuries of our starside resort. All buildings, rec centers and bedrooms are in our underground facilities with windows looking out onto the cliffside where you can see the asteroid belt flying overhead. You and your family will have the opportunity to dawn one of our space suits and explore the planet's surface in low gravity. Hike on the high mountains of Ceres and take your pictures below the moon Vesta. 


==========================================================================

This one has got to be one of the prettiest ones I've done. Sorry this took so long, I've been getting back into the groove of college. I only have three left to do! Keep an eye out for those soon and I'll keep you posted on the book. Also, it's really late right now so I'm gonna give my update on Teresa and Felix tomorrow. Night guys!

Some Warm Weather by TopHatTruffles
Some Warm Weather
Well I got bored and started doodling some characters. There was really no point to this I just wanted to practice faces. Crazy, right? Me making something without an unnecessarily drawn-out story? Damn

But so yeah it's finally warming up around here. It's been upwards of 30º for about 3 days and the 6 inches of ice over my walkway is down to 2 inches. I LOVE SPRING! 

Anyway, I'm gonna take a break from drawing for a bit to actually get some school work done while I have time left for vacation.

7W: The Great Red Spot by TopHatTruffles
7W: The Great Red Spot
Are you looking for a vacation but don't want to limit yourself to one location? Are you looking for an adventure that you'll never forget?

7W Premium Destination No. 3: The Great Red Spot
Enjoy your next three-day stay in orbit around the big milky marble itself, Jupiter. Our 7W space station is perpetually located above the planet's beautiful red eye, a massive hurricane roughly three times the size of either Earth or Venus, and comes fully equipped with hotel rooms, free television, a five-star restaurant, and entertainment for the whole family. Not to mention our favorite attraction: the Z-G chamber. On the end of the station nearest to the planet, we have turned off the gravity so you and your family can put on some fan-packs and enjoy flying around above the great red spot- completely safe in our highly-protected ship. During the evenings, watch a team of Zero-Gravity acrobatics perform routines like you have never seen before.


==========================================================================

Wow so I really cranked this one out quickly. 

Join Teresa and Felix on their third stop of their 21-day vacation adventure: The Great Red Spot of Jupiter. One of Teresa's absolute favorite experiences is the Z-G chamber, as she had always had dreams of becoming a Z-G performer herself. Felix, on the other hand, simply loves the experience because he gets to fly around a big open space without any kind of a space-suit whatsoever. I guess Teresa also enjoys that experience.

7W: Rings of Saturn by TopHatTruffles
7W: Rings of Saturn
Are you looking for a vacation but don't want to limit yourself to one location? Are you looking for an adventure that you'll never forget? Look no further than 7 Wonders7 Wonders cruise liners have stations on every colonized world in the Sol System, and are ready to take you and your family on the trip of a lifetime.

7W Premium Destination No. 2: The Rings of Saturn
Saturn: A beautiful Gas Giant with one of the most stunning phenomenon in the system- Rings. Our cruise liner will fall into orbit in the upper atmosphere of the orange world where our sky-raft will take you to Rhode City, the friendly floating neighborhood under the rings. You'll be staying at our finest apartment homes where you'll have 3 days of fine dining, free theatre and the most beautiful view of the rings passing overhead from your balcony. During the afternoons, our raft pilots will be offering rides around the clouds. The upper atmosphere outside the dome are luckily an average atmospheric pressure, meaning that you can walk in and out of the raft and onto the balcony of the ship to get a closer look. Just remember to wear a mask and one of our super-insulated suits to keep warm. 

===========================================================================

This piece took a little less than a couple of days, which means I'm getting faster at doing these landscapes. So I'm actually thinking about turning this little adventure into a children's book or at least an art-book with a nice story to it. When I finish the 7 landscapes, I think I'll add some in-between images and compile them into a solid story. 

We rejoin Teresa and Felix Castellano on the second destination of their journey, where they'll be staying 3 nights in one of the domed cities floating in the upper atmosphere of Saturn. There, they'll be gazing up at the stars and silky rings in the night sky while meeting with other families and enjoying some of the greatest food they've ever  had.

7W: The Geysers of Enceladus
Are you looking for a vacation but don't want to limit yourself to one location? Are you looking for an adventure that you'll never forget? Look no further than 7 Wonders! 7 Wonders cruise liners have stations on every colonized world in the Sol System, and are ready to take you and your family on the trip of a lifetime.

7W Premium Destination No. 1: The Geysers of Enceladus
Enceladus: one of Saturn's most travelled-to destinations. A massive ocean underneath the plates of its south pole makes way for one of the most stunning displays of water imaginable- Geysers of pressurized water that can shoot hundreds or even a thousand feet straight up into the sky. Bring your umbrellas and get enjoy your first 3 day layover of our trip in one of Enceladus's finest mountain-side resorts.  


=========================================================

So this piece took me a few days but I'm so happy with the results. If you're wondering- yes this is going to be a series. Most likely a series of 7, covering the Seven Wonders of the Solar System. 

7 Wonders is an extremely successful vacation adventure industry that originated in the mid-2400s that would take people to either the 7 natural wonders of the 7 industrial wonders of a specific planet. At the time, this was restricted to Earth, Mars and Venus. However as time passed, more and more worlds in the Sol System underwent terraformation and eventually the system was filled with dozens of categorized "wonders". Soon, 7 Wonders established their premium vacation plan which would take you to the seven greatest wonders in the entire system. 

The two characters in this piece are going to be the main focus of all seven. the 7W series is basically going to follow them on their vacation across the Sol System. The two are siblings named Teresa and Felix Castellano. Living without parents, Teresa took it upon herself to not only act as Felix's mother, but as a close friend. The two took care of each other and would go on adventures whenever they could. Teresa entered a contest at her work one day and became the lucky winner of a pre-paid premium 7W vacation.
