Artist / Designer / Video Editor
Who is Vinny John Usuriello? In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m an artist and designer. Art and design has been my passion since I was young at the early age of 4 or 5 years old. I was always captivated by movie and tv characters. When I was in kindergarten I would do my best to draw Ghostbusters, Ninja Turtles and Batman. Here I am over 25 years later and I’m still trying my best to draw tv and movie characters. I guess a lot hasn’t changed since I was 4 years old. Art is a way to express my creativity and show the world what I can do. Over the years I improved, and I continue to do so today. This website is a collaboration of my artwork along with design/web design work that I have completed. I’ve been lucky to have my artwork featured and spread around the world just by using the power of the internet and social media. In 2012, I was the winner of Showtime’s Fan Art contest and had the featured artwork displayed at Grand Central station for a period of time. Currently, they are selling the image on their merchandise. Art is powerful, fun, and I absolutely love it.
