Dyron got into art when he made the simple choice to pick up a pencil and persist. In 2013 he started drawing without guidance or classes and by the end of the year was regularly cranking out characters, cartoons and comics with a consistent style and theme. When Dyron started out, he didn’t think he was very good but instead of moving onto another hobby he “just kept doing it anyway.”
Without close friends or family who are artists, Dyron worked to create what is completely his own personal vision of art. So far, he’s received nothing but appreciation for what he does from his proud friends and family. Shortly after he started out with drawing he was referred to the Artists First Studio. Aside from drawing, he enjoys his part time job at a hotel and free time filled with TV shows and video games, where he finds the inspiration for many of his characters.
To understand what Dyron is all about, you have to understand the significance of the game console. The console is not just an object, but representative of an entity and personality in of itself. He enjoys learning new information about a world he never had the opportunity to experience himself. Each console has its own meaning partially connected to the historical research on the first video games
line drawings of different video game console, “Gameboy” , “Sega Genesis” , and “ Atari 2600 (1977)"
The comic strips Dyron creates are a combination of gaming components and the characters he creates. Sometimes the characters are shown in a traditional role with the game console, but often times they are interacting or representing the game console in unusual ways. The console is used as anything from a piece of furniture to a brand of clothing Dyron calls, “ Hero costumes.”
Originally Dyron used characters from movies and games to create his cartoons, but now that his drawing has evolved, he tends to create most of them himself. Over the years he’s created over 30 characters which re-appear in multiple character books and series. Sometimes the characters talk to each other or interact by playing games.
Most of Dyron’s characters are shown with what’s similar to an imaginary version of a game console encyclopedia entry. The books contain a synthesized background history about each character and its role with gaming. Aside from drawing, he uses these same ideas to create sculptures and 3D gaming parts.
He’s currently working on his biggest project yet, “Super Gaming Heroes” with the goal of completing it by his next birthday, in April. He wishes to continue to make characters and to someday have his work published as a series of comics.
Dyron plans to, “Keep his art forever, until the next future.” He loves that his finished ideas are forever stored in his imagination cloud. He described this helpful daydreaming process where “the paper takes me up to the art cloud and there are sunflowers and wildflowers in the clouds, and then it will show me what I’ve made.”
His plans to practice drawing are simple but effective, “ I do art when it's time, when it's time, I will feel like it and then I will do it.” Dyron draws both at home and an Artist First. Aside from inspiration through gaming and TV shows he’s also interested in creating what he calls a “futuristic nature” with things like “mechanical trees growing antennas”. And perhaps the most important motivation we discussed here is Dyron’s search for the perfect art date who will be
taken aback and inspired by his creations as much as he is. We can all agree a personal drawing is absolutely the perfect gift for someone you’re trying to impress.
