Phil Garcia

Born in San Diego, I was a military brat that grew up in southern Spain from 1981 until I moved to Oxnard CA in 1988.  I was a bored child so drawing and other arts kept me from trouble.  Besides art I grew up surfing Hueneme Beach.  I am a local from that beach and if you surf you know what I’m talking about.

After High School, I joined the US Navy Seabees.  I served proudly for 8 1/2 years and had the opportunity to travel the world.  I fought in the Iraq war in 2003 and returned a changed man.  After the war I realized that I can only control myself and not the masses.  I came back scarred, motivated, and best yet in love with my wife Angela who I married Jan 16th 2004, exactly one year after I went to Iraq.
