My name is Collin Otto.
I was born in Detroit in 1983. I grew up bouncing around the metro Detroit suburbs. Like many kids in my generation I was inspired to draw by my love for awesome cartoons and video games. My earliest memory of truly loving a story/cartoon/character came from the 1980’s transformers cartoon. Since that point I’ve spent a rediculous amount of time and large stacks of computer paper devoted to drawing whatever I felt was awesome.
In the two plus decades since; I’ve attended art school, done freelance side projects, and in recent years I’ve been developing my light tablet and digital painting skills. I’m working on taking my art and creative abilities to the next level. This is what I love, and this is how I want to make my career.
I married my beautiful wife, Angela Otto, in 2012. Together we are the parents of two incredible boys. In everything I do, I want to be an example to my family of how a person can achieve amazing things through hard work and determination. One day I want my children to follow their dreams, whatever they may be, and achieve great things.
