About Tony Banos

Learn more about Tony Banos from Curtis, A Coruna - Spain.








My inspiration in drawing was when I was 6 years old when I met my idol Ray Harryhuasen, his films inspired and motivated me. I have made illustrations, covers & posters for FANTASTIC FILMS-NEUTRON and for THE LOST WORLDS OF WILLIS O'BRIEN. I was born and raised in London, started drawing at the age of 6 loved drawing the marvel comics heroes and Ray Harryhausen monstrous. I was discouraged in high school, at the age of 13 I stopped drawing. When I got to my late 20's I felt the need to draw again so I self taught myself the art in drawing portraits with pastels. I stop again and made a comeback in my 40's and learned how to oil paint, since then I have not stopped. I am a very big fan and admirer of Jim Dallmeier's artwork It took my breath away when I saw for the first time Jim's art. I have reproduced one of his most memorable paintings of Ray Harryhausen and I'm very proud to have done so. I also teach painting and drawing tricks, demonstrations and tips for artists, I am a full time professional artist if you are an advanced artist amateur or professional my classes, techniques & experience will make your art grow.
