Richard Joe LeGarreta

     I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California. I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. I am completely self taught in drawing, illustration, and computer graphics. I’ve been in the graphic arts field as a professional for over 30 years. Some of my inspirations are comicbook artists and fantasy illustrators like Frank Frazzeta, Bernie Wrightson, Frank Cho, Arthur Adams, Jim Lee, and Todd McFarlan. I've always taken pride in designing my own characters, ships, machines, worlds, monsters, and cities. My imagination is an ever growing world of endless wonder.

     I have been involved in a wide range of projects and jobs. I've worked in the silkscreening industry for over 25 years. I've also worked with several comic book companies and independent publishers. I've am proficient with computer graphics and have designed literally thousands of graphics and logos. As of lately, I've gotten more into my independent projects. One of them is my game TombStones & ScaryBones. This is a project that I've worked on for over a year. It is now LIVE on Kickstarter. Check the home page for the link.

     My philosophy is the idea of bringing to life a company that will be a free ground for all creators and designers to express their work in an inspiring and encouraging environment.​
