My name is Billy Martinez. I create. I was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York and I am left handed. That's pretty much everything worth knowing at this point. Okay, there is a lot more but most of it is pretty run of the mill. I may not have ever been an Astronaut, but I played one in a movie. It was an independent film and it was a freebie but so what? I had fun.
The Director said he was glad to work with a professional - which in retrospect was odd since I wasn't paid for the role. I suppose that I could have just posted my resume but that's not the whole story. There is always more to people than their experience and this site will hopefully go a long way to shedding some light on me. Like that time I never wanted to be a male model. I never met Zoolander but I have been told that I got that Magnum thing down pat. Maybe it's the intense glare, the coal black eyes with no soul that roll back as the teeth gleam in the dim light of the ocean.
That was Jaws.
Take a few moment to explore the site and browse the work pages. As time goes by I plan on adding all of my created works - digital art, web designs, Illustrator artwork, poetry and Photos that I have taken in my spare time.
This site is all about my creative side, that free roaming spirit within that needs to express itself in color. I am a bit of a sports nut. I have been told that I have a great looking Golf swing. Maybe I will test it out on an actual course one day, as opposed to whacking the ball retrieval cart at the local driving range. I admit it. I am not ashamed of my love for Sports Center. I get some time in watching the Discovery and the History Channel too. A well balanced television diet is very important to the creative process. That and Stargate SG-1 (serious eye candy for the digital artist). I have a serious business side, over 6 years of management experience in a variety of fields; but if you are looking for that aspect of my life you’ll need to see the resume. A quick email requesting one and I can take care of that. I won’t take anymore of your time than absolutely necessary. Enjoy the exhibit. Feel free to drop me a note with any questions or comments you have.
