My name is Eric Hope. I spent my early life living abroad in France, England and Spain. My father was an enlisted man in the U.S. Air Force and my mother was from Bretagne, France the last Celtic province in mainland Europe. This upbringing afforded me an unbridled exposure to many different cultures, music and art.
Growing up on military bases in foreign countries, I found myself spending a lot of time watching movies and reading comic books. This interest in comics and film, would come into play later on in life when I became a staff colorist for the first iteration of Valiant Comics.
Also during this early period, I acquired an active interest in music starting with The Beatles during our family’s time in England.
This interest progressed when my mother gave me a cassette called Woodstock II which featured Jimi Hendrix. I was blown away and inspired, little knowing I would later in life become the Art Director of the legendary music venue, B.B. King Blues Club & Grill on 42nd Street in NYC for 14 amazingly fun, creative years.
Music and Art has been my life long inspiration.
