When you're not creating amazing works of art, what do you enjoy doing?

 

Spending time with my family.

TWIST, META, KAWS, COST, SEEN, TIE, MQ, GIANT....just the tip of the iceberg.

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

Resin, pigment, paint, Sharpie, and scratch board 

 

 

Where were you born? Year, Country, State. Where do you live currently?

 

Hawaii. Currently residing in PDX

 

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I have always been influenced by the old Skate graphics by V. Courtlandt Johnson,  Kevin Ancell and Jim Phillips.  They all have such amazing style and they all were pioneers for the industry.   Back in the 80's, I was also really into action figures, NES games, and comic books.  I like to infuse and work these elements into my art and also my resin mashup figures.

 

Who is your favorite skateboarder, living or dead? Any ties to skateboarding?

 

This is a tough one, there are just way too many, ...Probably Lance Mountain and Natas. 

 

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

Another tough one, I would say my favorite artist is Barry McGee, and for deceased Jon Lim, a.k.a. TIE R.I.P.
