Ferris Plock is an artist living and working in the city of San Francisco. His work is primarily character-based imagery that incorporates his passion for storytelling. Surrealist and seemingly innocent, Ferris’ work doesn’t subscribe to any particular genre. Based on sketches, his artwork more often than not incorporates animals or monsters in everyday human conditions- going to work, dodging splashes from cars, walking their pets, or some other scenario involving his amazing creatures.
As a kid, Ferris created comic books with the guidance of his two older brothers. The three brothers would create their own stories with their own sets of characters. Ferris found at an early age that he wanted to explore the characters that he was developing in his head. His mother was a school teacher that read often to him from her massive collection of children stories… These stories she read inspired him to write multiple stories and he developed hundreds of characters, each one of them with some humorous ending. He became deeply interested in writing in high school and worked at a comic book store with one of his brothers, often opting to trade his salary for comic books. With such an intense childhood filled with storytelling and character development, it is simple to see why Ferris creates his artwork with such an interest in telling a story.
