"There are ten thousand people in this world who can paint or draw to beat the band but you'll never see them or know who they are. These people have mastered their craft and that is all they have."
A close friend once said "You're a terrible person with many redeeming qualities."
I draw too many weird things to take myself seriously, or anything for that matter. I do however value someone's scruples. I don't have time for flakey people, only the stomach for frosted flakes..those are delicious.
I'm an Illustrator or "Communication Artist", so I like storytelling by nature and am conversational. I like to think before I speak while letting my facial expressions slowly get me into trouble. I'm out most of the day with a sketchbook and on my longboard skating to the city. Keeping things simple and living minimal is my Motto. Or, as the pop's would call it, "He's a stream-liner"
I Paint and Teach by day and night and Paint for Overall Murals. That's what you get from growing up in the woods of VT. More like a basement to be exact. I'm typically either on the road with my board, at the drafting table, teaching, or faceplanting on my bed assuming I missed the floor entirely. It's also a bad idea to fall asleep onsite of the painting in a 7pm-7am shift. You can throw reckless into the mix here, but at the end of the day I try to have manners and be safe. It's safe to say that without teaching, painting, or skating I'd either be dead or in jail by accident.
On a lighter note I'm big on walks and museum trips just for shenanigans and lively art-arguments that could end up in bloodshed, or not.
