I got my ass kicked by the bad economy in NYC so ran to family with my tail between my legs in Schuyler County. I'd been meaning to move to Ithaca but could never quite get the funds to do it properly. I'm from NYC, meaning I never learned to drive. Ithaca is one of few places I can hold a job and have no car.
So I'm now in Ithaca the hard way, the farm I was staying in BURN DOWN! I lost my pet cat, my art supplies, my mac computer and more. But on the positive side, I'm now renting a room in Ithaca. I'm here now... and now it is September. I have the room at least until Dec, I have a regular part time job on the Ithaca Commons. I now have a wacom tablet, scanner and printer, all very cheap from the Ithaca Re-Use center at Triphammer mall. New Ithacat comic is getting done.

About my personality, I'm a geek. Interested in Art, writing, computers, comics and games. I actually write and draw my own comics , check 'em out at http://kitschcore.com. I'm also interested in mysterious things occult and personal development and so forth.
Umm, what else? Politically I'm left enough to maybe look a little right wing? A little bit socialist, a little bit libertarian - some test here pigeonholed me as a 'strong democrat' whatever that is.
Spiritually my practice is a personal variation on Chaos magic and I find wisdom and possibility in Zen Buddhism. I was raised by Atheistic parents. Zen Buddhism is to me almost a form of spiritual Atheism (Buddha just so happens to have discovered something and to have set an example - a far cry from omnipotence). The Chaos magic is like a free form freestyle approach to the occult - it does work. But so too does prayer. Neither stands up to challenge much, no good way to prove a result is not a coincidence (especially when a principle I work with is that coincidence could be more rule than exception).
I was born and raised in NYC, I attended Staten Island Academy, PS41, IS70 and Stuyvesant HS. I attended the Joe Kubert School of Cartooning and Graphic Art, and also have enough college credits from Tompkions Cortland Community College to almost have an Associates in Liberal arts or something.
I am Smart, Artistic, and Sardonic
