I am a father, a husband, an artist, and a businessman.
Drawing and making art has been my way of connecting to others and the world around me for as long as I can remember. I found inspiration in all of my favorite shows, such as Masters of the Universe, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even Scooby Doo. Later, I found influence in the art of counter-culture. Heavy Metal album covers, skateboard art and tattoo magazines were my inspiration.
My art has never been 'subtle'. Much like my well of inspiration, I like to use my art to illustrate the myths, stories and legends I find compelling. Using intense and contrasting imagery, flow, contrast between vivid and muted color, varied line weight, and the appropriate amount of contrast, I can create unique and compelling imagery in a way that best portrays the collector as an INDIVIDUAL and will pass the test of time.
