Eric Carbrey is a painter from Kansas. One of his first run ins with art was a few years back. September or October 1991. How does he know such an exact time period? He was nine years old and his older brother went up to him with a drawing that he said he drew of Mario from the video game Super Mario World. Eric’s first thought was wow, quickly followed by I bet can draw better than that. And so he tried and tried, only to find out weeks later that his brother had traced the September 1991 cover of Nintendo Power magazine to obtain his “drawing.” Even though Eric found out that his brother had bamboozled him he was hooked. Eric’s relationship with art has grown a bit more complex since that time and his interest in the visual has only strengthened. Eric is fairly sure that he could still out draw his brother, and he is also fairly sure that his brother is out of practice, besides Eric’s game of choice is now Tetris.
