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

 

I was born on a superfund toxic waste dump site in southwestern Washington state in 1975. Right now I live in Ohio. Where its fucking cold and everyone is fat and drunk. 

 

 

 What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?

 

I drew as a kid on the walls with paint I pinched from my moms art supply box. Once when I was about 6, she told me I'd stolen the paint and since it was a crime, I had to go to jail for a long time. I was bummed, but after I put my tie-fighter in a suitcase and made sure that kraft macaroni and cheese was available in prison, I walked out to the road to wait for the prison truck. It was well past dark when she told me she was teaching me a lesson and I didn't have to go to jail. I Haven't been caught writing on other peoples shit since. True story.
