My name is Jomaro Kindred, aka Gill Bates. I started my artistic journey at age 7 and have never looked back. While everyone was outside playing sports, you could find me firmly attached to my drafting table, drawing for hours on end. I studied everything from still life, to life drawing, my favorite comic books, and definitely anatomy books. And I am still as much in love and as enthusiastic about art as I was back then.
