Hi, my name is Joel Carlo, but you may know me better as MechaHateChimp throughout many online art communities. I’ve been a professional artist and illustrator for over 25 years and my work has been published in several art magazines including ImagineFX and 2DArtist.

I have an “on again, off again” relationship with figurative art because at the end of the day, I’m a bit of a soul searcher and don’t like to be tied down… at least that’s what I like to tell myself. That’s why I decided to put this site together as a way to keep a record of the work I’ve done over the years and for posterity’s sake. I’m hoping it will be a source of inspiration whenever I need motivation to keep drawing… but I won’t hold my breath. Regardless, I hope you enjoy it.
