Aki Ruiz is a multi-disciplined illustrator who creates art that tells stories. 

He grew up in the eternal summertime of San Jose, California, and currently resides in the temperate rainforests of Portland, Oregon. He has a BFA Degree in Animation/Illustration from San Jose State University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.


He likes to spend his time going to haunted restaurants, drawing in cozy teahouses, exploring lush forests, plein air painting, and putting angry eyebrows on everything. 

Aki is currently freelancing, but is looking for a full time job (remote or on location).
