About Ray Hofstedt

Love to draw. Ever since I can remember I've always been drawing and doodling fun cartoons. I'm the guy at the party that drew a rock band with an Etch-a-Sketch and the party stopped while everyone passed it around trying not to tip it and erase it. I drew a Bullwinkle cartoon in your yearbook because my nickname was 'Moose'.

Born in Spokane Washington.
Grew up in Santa Ana, CA

Mom and Dad influenced my artistic talents. Dad drew caricatures, portraits and cut silhouettes at Disneyland when I was a kid. He was a sign painter in Garden Grove, CA as well. No digital printing back then. I still get goose bumps watching Dad draw.
Mom was creative and talented in sewing, crochet and gardening. She was always behind my artistic ambitions and proudly displayed my early works of art.

I learned to draw caricatures from Dad when I got out of High School and worked in Waikiki, Hawaii in the International Market Place drawing tourists. It was in Hawaii where I started to do watercolor and ink wash paintings of sunsets and palm trees. I love how the paint flows with a mind of its own to create unique designs.

After a long career of drawing caricatures in amusement parks (Met my beautiful wife Stella while sketching at Magic Mountain), drawing for Disney Animation and creating digital animation for DVD, BluRay and Internet Marketing, I always enjoy getting back to the drawing table and painting fun stuff. I'll put on some vinyl records on the old turntable and lose myself in ink and watercolor.

I would love to hear what inspires you when it comes to art and cartoons. Thanks for checking out my gallery.
