Blending realist, abstract and surreal art styles with anime and cartoon influences, kelogsloops’ work intends to capture the ethereal, evoke the dream-like, and stir the whimsical. He started drawing as a child, often losing himself in his sketchbooks drawing characters from anime series and manga, notably, Sailor Moon. The artist went on to paint digitally in 2009 after receiving his first drawing tablet. In his final years of high school, kelogsloops began experimenting with watercolor painting as part of an assignment for his studio subject. Consequently, he fell in love with the medium and has defined himself as an artist since, going by his motto of 'be right back, chasing dreams.'
