Eric Ray (Takkless)

Founding Member & Artist

Eric (aka: Takkless) is a self-taught illustrator who's been working to develop his style since putting pen to paper as a wee tot. High School and the years after brought a concentration on character design and development, and in lieu of formal training Eric draws heavily from his major influences, including Brom, Luis Royo, Bernie Wrightson, Ed Benes, Stan Lee, Jim Lee, Alfonse Mucha, and many others.

Eric is married to a lovely woman, Rose, and has two amazing kids, who know to within a hair's width just how tightly they have him wrapped around their fingers. He currently resides in Charlotte, NC and makes a living as an artist and tattooer, occasionally journeying down to Atlanta just to keep the rest of the Confederacy in line.
