Artist / Designer / Video Editor
Who is Vinny John Usuriello? In case you haven’t figured it out already, I’m an artist. Art has been my passion since I was a young lad 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 over 6 years of hard work and improvement. 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.
