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

What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures

 

I have always been inspired to create but really fell in love with drawing and painting while working at a local skate shop 1999 through the mid 2000's. I was inspired to create from skate culture and skateboard artwork while working at the shop.

 

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

 

One of my favorite skaters has to be Patrick Melcher.

 

Who is your favorite artist, living or dead?

 

I have always been inspired by Sam Keith and Stephen Gammell. 

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

 

I help run a gallery right outside Chicago called Paper Crown gallery. When I'm not working there or creating I am playing video games Silent Hill is a serious addiction of mine.

 

 

What mediums do you enjoy working in?

 

I work with acrylics, spray paint and ink but I also enjoy copic markers and oil painting.

 

Anything else you want to tell?
