Artist- Tyler Cortez
About the artist:
Tyler Cortez lives in Ormond Beach, Florida, where he grew up. He has always found himself doodling as a creative outlet. As a child, cartoon tv shows and illustrations of Shel Silverstein (Where the Sidewalk Ends) and Dav Pilkey (Captain Underpants) helped spark his imagination. Later in his life artists like Rene Magritte, H.R. Geiger, and Harry Clarke furthered his interest in art and illustration. He primarily uses pen and ink on paper and is working on his painting practice. Tyler loves the outdoors and multitude of plant medicines found in them. Aside from art, he enjoys learning about ecology and mycology in his free time.
