cvelarde's Profile Picture
United States
Chase Velarde was born in Forest Grove, Oregon in the spring of 1988. He started drawing at the age of three, and won his first award in kindergarten. At the tender age of six, he shrewdly turned a homemade lemonade-stand into an art-stand which showcased his first gallery. The art stand was wildly popular with his parents, and he sensed a future in the field, so, intrepidly, he pushed on.

Being homeschooled in the tiny town of Yamhill, Oregon, Chase found drawing to be essential to maintaining his sanity, and was influenced early on by multiple comic strips. In his teenage years, he designed custom graphics and logos for various organizations and worked for a short time as a conceptual artist for a screen-printing company before becoming a caricature artist. His area of expertise is character design.

He is currently living in beautiful Portland, Oregon where he attends the Pacific Northwest College of Art and is on his way to acquiring a degree in Illustration.

Current Residence: Portland, OR
I proudly unleash my new blog! Its true, I've started a few blogs before but have done a sloppy job keeping up with them. Now is the time for change! This will now be the best way to follow my art flow, including in-progress work, so check it out and enjoy!

Really amazing body of work you have!

Just browsed your gallery and it looks awesome. I'm surprised to see you don't have a bigger following. One of your more painterly pieces caught my eye, as I am studying Corel Painter I thought I'd have a look at your technique.

Pretty impressive stuff. Rock on sir. :nod:

you have awesome work! i was thinking of going freshman and hunting an illustration degree at pnca as well. what can you tell me of the place?
cvelarde Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2012
Thank you! PNCA is a really good school, specifically because the professors help each student develop their personal artistic voice, rather than having them conform their work to fit current jobs in the industry. I definitely recommend it for any serious up-and-coming artist.
