About me? What's to say? My name's Eric Summers, but you can call me that Summers guy. I came into the world at the same time as Star Wars. That's pretty much everything.
Well, maybe not.
Art is my life. Whether it's clean graphic design, digital painting, sculpture, music or just a pencil on a sheet of paper, I love and appreciate it. I've known since I was 8 years old that I wanted to spend my life making art, and I've been lucky enough and worked hard enough to make it happen in varying degrees.
I’m 38, and married to an awesome woman, who just happens to be my high-school sweetheart. We’ve got a completely rad 7-year-old boy that I love with every fiber of my being, even if I do want to bonk his head sometimes. I enjoy clean and effective design, drinking good beer, grilling outside in the warmth with my friends, drawing and digitally painting, playing drums, watching cheesy movies and casual gaming.
Oh, I’m also a huge, HUUUUUGE geek. Seriously. Let’s put it this way, if I was forced to make a list of the best authors ever, I’d break a lot of academic hearts. Hemingway? Faulkner? Psshht! Who needs ‘em.
Gimme some Stephen King, John Scalzi, James S.A. Corey, Brandon Sanderson and J.K. Rowling and I could die happy on that proverbial desert island. Don’t even get me started on my current unhealthy obsession with Patrick Rothfuss.
Unfortunately for my miniscule spare time, I’m also a huge movie and TV dork. I’m mainly partial to good (not necessarily great) sci-fi flicks, Marvel movies, the works of Christopher Nolan, Martin Scorsese, and cheesy ’80s B-movies, to name but a few. Oh yeah, there’s another unhealthy obsession there, too. Total Joss Whedon worshipper. Give me great shows like Lost, Fringe, Carnivale and Game of Thrones any day. Stories make the world go ’round.
That’s…that’s pretty much it. I guess the Playboy interview is over. Centerfold to come. So if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go kiss the wife, play some Overwatch with my kid and watch some Preacher.
Though not necessarily in that order.
Have fun tooling around the site!
