"As an artist, balancing myself between a commercial and fine arts seesaw has been my main job. Growing up my influences came from many places, such as cartoons, comic books to graffiti art. I like working on various jobs from different genres, this keeps my creative juices always working. Erotica also plays a major role in my art which seems to finds its way in most things I create. I do like the challenge of coming up with ways of story telling through my art, so new and different commissions are always welcomed." Elstabo
