Hello and welcome to Lucid Shanty—my studio! My name is Jose-Luis Segura and I’m a professional artist that enjoys working on a diverse and wide array of projects.

As an illustrator I’ve worked with companies such as Machine Zone, Monumental Games, 5th Planet Games and various independent authors. As a storyboard artist I’ve worked with Deloitte Digital and Viscira llc.

As you might imagine I spend most of my day painting but when I’m not up to my elbows in pixels or paint I enjoy taking my two dogs ( Hiro and Mochi ) on walks. Outside of visual arts I enjoy woodworking and cooking— and I must say that after building my own wood burning oven, I’ve finally achieved a great Neapolitan pizza.

I’ve been making art since I was young but I trained at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco California and in 2003 received my BFA. I further expanded my education with course work in animation, visual development, and 3D modeling. I still take classes today. I like to stay up to date with the latest trends and expand my creative tool set.

Art is not only my passion, it’s also my profession. It’s a craft of which even though I may never summit its’ peak, I will continue to climb. Because, the higher you climb the more beautiful the view.

I’m available for freelance and contract work.
