BIO jan2014_by_thechamba-d71e07q

Jeffrey Cruz (known also by his pen name of Chamba) is a young man of few things. Since as early as ’89 (the year he first consciously picked up a pencil), he’s had one main constant in his life, that constant being his love of Art and his unending passion to simply draw.

With an unused Bachelors degree of Art under his belt, he has somehow managed to land several illustrating gigs such as magazine and DVD covers and his dream job of creating artwork for comic books. Jeffrey was one of artists that illustrated the Ray Harryhausen/Bluewater Comics collaborative title “Sinbad: Rogue of Mars”.

His work with Udon comics began with several small gigs such as illustrating UFS fighting game cards, a Gamepro Magazine cover as well as the Street Fighter Alpha/Alpha Generations DVD cover art. Along the way he has done character concept work which led to his main job with UDON as the artist for the current “Street Fighter Unlimited” comic book. Born in the Philippines, raised in Melbourne, Australia, he hopes to continue living his passion of art for as long as he can.
