Tommy Orosco is an award-winning artist from Orange County, California. Though he began drawing at a young age, he did not receive formal training until his senior year of high school. He then proceeded to major in Fine Art with a focus in Illustration at California State University Fullerton and Video Game Art & Design at the Art Institute of California, Orange County, where he remained on the honor list for three trimesters. Upon leaving A.I.C.O.C., he founded Motzero Illustrations, where he works as a freelance illustrator, graphic designer, and web designer. Tommy has also studied 3D Modeling & Animation, Videography, Graphic Design, and Website Developement.

It has been said that Tommy “is gifted with a diverse arsenal of artistic weaponry”. He is as comfortable drawing with a pen and paper as he is painting on large canvases or using a Wacom tablet in Photoshop. Though a large majority of his past art combined dark themes with dramatic lighting, natural beauty, and somber emotion, over the past few years he has started experimenting with a fresh, loose style more akin to graffiti or street art.
