Illustrations, Comics and Stories
My name is Joseph Boquiren. I am a self-taught illustrator based in beautiful Portland, Oregon.
As a young kid I was inspired by the comics I found in 'Boy's Life' magazines. I began to draw comics on my own. I detoured from drawing comics while pursuing an architectural degree. It was during college that I found a passion for sketching and life drawing. After 2008, I returned to my first love and make time to put pen to paper whenever I can.
My work is inspired by such legends as the late, great Moebius, Geoff Darrow and Nate Simpson. Due to these influences my art has taken on a very 'clean' look. I pencil, write, ink, and color all my own stories. My partner Karin and I collaborate on most of my color work since I am colorblind.
I am always looking for new projects to sink my teeth into. Write or call me! Thanks for stopping by the website.
