Alex Pardee grew up in the Bay Area, and first dabbled in art when he made the positive correlation between creating art and eliminating his depression. Since then, he has become a self-made man in the art world with his collective Zerofriends, a site that sells Pardee's own projects alongside other great work.

Pardee has created comercial work that ranges from movie imagery for movies like Sucker Punch and Inglourious Basterds, to clothing for Upper Playground, to a recent piece for Charlie Sheen's UStream show, Sheen's Korner. Click on to see Pardee's work and to hear his stories about each piece.
