Biography 

Oliver Dominguez was born and raised in the South side of Miami, where he spent his time reading comics, watching cartoons and playing with action figures. In school he was called "the artist boy" because he always carried a huge portfolio.  He studied Illustration at Ringling College of Art + Design and spent two summers attending in The Illustration Academy. Now his weeks are spent working as a freelance artist, a Children's Book Artist and illustrating his own stories. His love of historical figures has lead him to illustrate two children's books called "Electrical Wizard: How Nikola Tesla Lit the World and Miracle Mud: Lena Blackburne and The Secret Mud that Changed Baseball."  He currently lives in Fort Myers with his lovely wife Melissa, his adorable two children Aubrey and Gage and also his two dogs, 
Hazel and Houston. When he is not illustrating, he indulges in books, movies, and an appetite for unique hats.
