CREATE LIKE A GOD, COMMAND LIKE A KING, WORK LIKE A SLAVE.
I draw. I paint. I create. It defines who I am. There is no other way for me to be. It’s like asking water why it’s wet, or fire why it’s hot, or cows why they are stupid....it’s just the way it is. I am only truly happy when I am up to my cranium in an idea. I grew up on B-movies, sci-fi, twilight zones and Saturday morning cartoons. Give me a sketchbook, a stack of oatmeal raisin cookies, and a Godzilla marathon and I will fall into a state of bliss filled euphoria not commonly seen without outside narcotic influences. If the ideas are flowing, any and all subjects are in play, robots, landscapes, monsters, still lifes, or a convoluted combo of all of them. Basically if I can step back from an illustration, and chuckle, I have achieved success. To get a chuckle out of someone else on the same piece is divinity. A smile cast in the direction of something that I have created is the connection I strive for, be it a painting or a graphic tee.
As long as I am walking this earth, and not a zombie, I will continue to create via traditional methods, or by creating some new methods of my own. These last years of being a freelance designer have been amazing, and I look to continue doing it, ever evolving, always looking for a new angle to look at things from, and challenge myself to create. It’s what I do.
