Introduction: Jose Ramirez "che-che"

hello... i don't really know what to say. i wanted to introduce myself. on this blog. my name is jose ramirez aka che-che. For the past 7 years i have worked for several production studios doing everything from 3D modeling, photoshop compositions, to concept art and graphic design. Currently i am a 3D modeler and texturer for a military flight simulator company by day. At night i am a freelance illustrator, concept artist, and graphic designer. i consider myself a digital artist. i dabble in it all.

I aslo run Drink and Draw DFW sketchgroup which i started about 2 years ago. When i was in san antone i bought the Drink and Draw Social Club art book. I wondered if dallas had a chapter knowing that there was atleast a handful of comic book artist in the area there surely had to be one. but alas there wasn't. So I went ahead and started the group. Got me self some postcards made and i went to all the comic shops that i knew of and spread the cards around. We had a great response. Thanks to the metroplex artist! We are still going strong. Drink and Draw meets up every other week at the Flying Saucer in North dallas. near belt line and the tollway.

My goals as an artist is to complete several comic book short stories. Do some character designs for an animated series or feature, maybe even a video game. i also have a couple of ideas for video games. which looks more feasable now thanks to smart phones and XBLA.

well i hope i didnt bore you too much with my story here and wish you all the best.
