Art is what I do, and what I love. I have been an artist for as long as I can remember. I believe we all start out as artists, and I have no doubt that at some point, each of us has picked up a pencil or marker to connect with our creative side. I just decided to stick with it and have stayed committed to developing my style which consists of a wide range of realism, abstract and a little bit of both. In short, I paint what I like and choose colors that move me. My subject matter is also wide ranging, consisting of concept, whimsical, wildlife, fantasy and science fiction. I work with acrylic, oils, digital and follow a simple rule: I make my traditional paintings look like digital photos and my digital work like traditional paintings. I believe art is more than just a piece of paper or canvas; it is an extension of the artist himself. For me, my goal is to produce art worthy of being displayed in people's homes, featured on magazine covers, a catalyst to inspire our youth, and to leave a legacy for my family. Time escapes us all, thus, I choose to spend my time being a loving husband, chasing my dreams and developing my craft.

Art Book

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 1, 2014, 4:44 PM
    Here’s a nice little preview of the book, the first 15 pages:
    www.blurb.com/books/5228270-ar…

    Front and Back Cover (Or in this case Back and Front)

    I’ve been wanting to create one of these for a while now. This is my first art book showcasing 30 full pages (close to 40 works) displaying various illustrations and paintings created in Oil, Acrylic and Digital mediums. I didn't want to put a lot of text in this book, I just said what I needed to say on the first page and the rest are my paintings. No text, no titles…just art.  I have to say it was nice creating something where my URL isn't plastered on every image.

    This book displays a nice variety of digital and traditional mediums, I challenge you to decide which piece was created in what medium.

    Please share my work (not just on DA) to all your friends, it’s how artists get discovered by the sharing of others, I'll be forever grateful. I ask that you like my FB Fanpage if you would :),(www.facebook.com/artofstevegoa… I used to think asking people to like my fan page was weird/pushy but I realize now as artists we really need to promote ourselves. As a matter of fact if you'd like to leave your FB Fanpages here in this journal please do so and I will like them as well. Thank you for taking the time to look at my work, for the favorites and comments, it means a lot! Even though I am unable to respond to every fav or comment I just want to say I really appreciate it, more than you'll ever know.

    Take Care 




    A couple of things I'm currently working on:







  • Listening to: Orignial Movie Scores
  • Watching: Justice League Unlimited
  • Playing: Saints Row IV, DCUO
  • Eating: Thai and Vietnamese
