Adam Alaniz can make pretty much anything look warm and inviting. The depths of the ocean, the mysterious rainforests–even germs! He draws much of his inspiration from landscapes, fables, science, and nature. For some reason, his paintings, especially Someone Is Calling, reminds me of a cuter version of FernGully: The Last Rainforest, one of my favorite childhood movies.
His gentle creatures and magical settings have been exhibited at Gallery 1988, Santa Monica Art Studios, Gallery Nucleus, and La Luz de Jesus. In addition, The Society of Illustrators of Los Angeles presented Adam with the Children’s Market Gold Award for Germ Parade.
