I began when I was in elementary school, drawing cars and trucks instead of paying attention to the teacher.

Jesus Gonzalez started drawing cars and trucks in elementary school. He later stopped for several years, until thumbing through a copy of Truckin’ and seeing the “Radical Renderings” section. Jesus then decided that he wanted to get back into drawing. In high school, Jesus took a graphic arts class and learned Adobe Photoshop. He started with sloppy chops, swapping wheels, changing paint, and shaving stuff. Then he got his first truck, a 1993 S-10 Blazer. After joining an S-10 forum, Jesus found a Photoshop competition. He immediately began entering his drawings in the contests. After being crushed by professional rendering artists, Jesus really stepped up his game and eventually placed in the top three and finally won a contest. Now, at 19 years old, Jesus and a friend, Antonio Kemper, are launching a web-based rendering company called No Life Designs. Keep on the lookout for Jesus’ new company, and for more of his renderings, scroll to the bottom of the page!
