Bio & Resume

Over twenty years ago, I started a website on Geocities to learn about making websites. As time went on it evolved into a recording of my journey as an artist, covering my creative efforts, failures, triumphs and travels. It's been an interesting ride so far, and I'm looking forward to the next twenty years and beyond.

I'm Mario, the Artisan Rogue, a Kansas City based freelance Illustrator, Poet, Voice Actor, Creative Consultant, Animal and Human Rights Activist, and incurable collector. I'm notoriously scruffy in appearance and attitude, with a tendency to gravitate towards laughter and positive vibes. Drawing, designing, imagining, dreaming, collaborating and producing new ventures are what I embrace and look for.

I also work part time on contract at Hallmark in downtown Kansas City.

Weekends throughout the year, will find me in attendance at a comic or pop culture themed show, set up at a booth selling my own art and self published works.
