Ev Religioso

Principal Artist

Ev grew up in the “Steel City” of Pittsburgh, PA, his youth stolen from him with long hours in various logging companies and steel factories. Actually, Ev grew up in a suburb of Pittsburgh called Jeannette, and spent his childhood drawing superheroes and playing Nintendo. Yet his life changed forever when his Dad brought home a PC. They quickly became best friends, as the computer was interested in Ev’s experience with the steel industry, and Ev was fascinated by the computer’s “on and off or combination thereof” view of the world. The two friends parted when Ev left for college to get a “real job,” i.e. a Masters in Physical Therapy. When he met his future wife, Erica, in Buffalo, he felt the need to pursue a more creative job.  Ev transferred to RIT- and by chance ran into his friend PC, and 3,200 identical friends like him. Armed with a degree in Film and Animation- PC and Ev went to travel and conquer the world, and subsequently ended up in Champaign, IL.
