Mr. Aragones was born in San Francisco, California. As a young person, he learned how important art was in his life. He was sickly throughout much of his childhood. Thus, he was put in a position where he learned to use his imagination continuously and it fueled his creativity in art.
Norman's studied various academic subjects closely throughout high school, college, and graduate school and he found himself examining those ideas presented in classes and meshing them with his artistic endeavors.
