Originally from Chicago, I relocated to San Francisco in the fall of 2005. I always drew as a kid. In my teens, the skateboarding days, I admired slick, glossy illustrations and comics that left not a hint of process. I also appreciated punk rock flyers and zines and posters made in the “cut and paste” style. I tried to emulate both ways working, even though the two styles might seem at odds. More recently, my subject has been people.
The steps should be visible.
A slick looking finish does not interest me as much as it once did.
I often make art on odd, discarded, or junk surfaces. I like to re-use.
An imperfect / weathered / marred surface is a great thing.
Most likely, I will paint it up, scratch it away, and then paint over it again.
I like to fight with the surface.
Add some text.
I prefer muted and/or dark colors.
