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

 

I was born and raised in Meridian, Mississippi in the year of 1971

 

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures

 

I first started drawing at a very early age, around 6 or 7.  I used to try to draw KISS, my favorite band at the time, in full makeup and costume.  I also was into horror movies, and would draw werewolves, dracula, etc.

 

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

 

In my skateboarding days, it was Tony Hawk vs. Christan Hosoi, and I was on the Tony Hawk side.  I don’t skate anymore, but I do get to do graphics for various companies, so that’s not bad at all. 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

It changes from day to day, but today I would say Pushead.

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

 

I like to play guitar and record music, strictly for my own amusement, and I’ve really been into gardening lately.

 

Who are your biggest influences

 

Too many to list, but I would say overall Skateboarding graphics from the 80’s, old heavy metal album covers, and movie monsters....

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

This was my first acrylic painting in a LONG time, so it was a struggle, but I enjoyed it...I may have to dive a little deeper into it.
