Summary

I am an illustrator and also a skilled fine artist proficient in 2-D animation and sequential arts. In 2005, I formed Calavera Comics, a comic book company, with some colleagues from school. Besides comics and illustration, I am also experienced with audio and video editing, graphic design, as well as printing. Some of my works include: music flyers for groups such as Mastodon and Cage, concept art and storyboards for the upcoming “Ultimo Dragon” movie, plus my own comic series “Rudo” and “Pistolero”. Currently, I reside in Tampa Florida, and have a BFA degree in Media Arts & Animation from the Art Institute of Tampa.

“I have known Alexis for over a year. During that time I have always been amazed by the hard work, dedication, and effort he puts into his illustration and sequential arts work. Alexis is very passionate about his work, and he has the skill, work ethic, and drive to make his dreams a reality.”

I would like to recommend Alexis Ziritt as a candidate for a position with your company.  In his position as IT Student Worker, Alexis was employed with our IT department from 2005 to 2008 when I was the Director of Technology at the Art Institute of Tampa.  Alexis did an excellent job in this position and was an asset to the IT support staff.  He has excellent interpersonal skills, is extremely dependable, and is always willing to go the extra mile to make sure the job gets done.During his time with The Art Institute, Alexis was responsible for opening the Equipment Cage and Print Service areas each day at 7:00 AM.  He was always on time and got the day started on the right foot.  Praise for Alexis by campus faculty and staff was a common occurrence due to his willingness to assist them with getting their classes running in the computer labs, helping them with color prints and copies, and always providing service with a smile.  Alexis would commonly need to juggle several tasks at the same time and handled all of them with a high level of quality and grace.  He never allowed himself to get frustrated or overwhelmed even during the busiest times during finals and midterms when hundreds of students needed his assistance.Alexis was always willing to offer a helping hand at any time, even during hours between classes when he wasn't scheduled to work.  It was common to find Alexis helping other employees across campus if they needed his assistance from Student Affairs to Facilities and often times as a courtesy to them as a volunteer.  Due to Alexis' great attitude, willingness to help, and level head he would be an asset to any employer and I recommend him for this position.

“Alexis has a flair an illustrative talent that is exciting and engaging all at once. His aesthetics and envelope pushing subject matter is exciting and engaging. Mr. Ziritt has a networking spirit. A few words to describe Alexis would be engaging, artistic, supportive, humorous, and a team player.”
