Born in Portland, Oregon, and raised in Lubbock, Texas, Alex made his artistic debut at age three when, according to his mother, he grabbed a piece of paper and drew the contents of a television commercial he'd seen moments before. By age 13 he was scripting and drawing original comic books. Ten years later? He was hired by Marvel Comics to illustrate Marvel's central characters in the comic book event, Marvels (1994).
Alex's work has celebrated the 60th anniversary of Superman, Batman, Captain Marvel, and Wonder Woman with fully painted, tabloid-sized books, depicting each of these characters using their powers to inspire humanity as well as help them.
Having positioned his artwork squarely in the center of Pop culture, Alex is now turning his attention toward beloved Disney characters. Having often been referred to as the Norman Rockwell of comics, Alex’s expert style and classical sensibilities combine wonderfully with the spirit of Disney Fine Art, creating breathtaking works that are sure to delight fans of all ages.
