the Artisan Rogue

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 a hell of 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 Illustrator, Poet, Voice Actor and Creative Consultant. I'm no frills, 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 work at Hallmark. I'm also a freelancer for various clients providing design services, voice over, and illustration.

The occasional weekend can 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.
