Kid Zero

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


Porterville, CA. 1983. Portland Oregon.



What initially drew you to drawing pretty pictures?


I started drawing when I was around 5, I'd go get comic books and practice drawing characters, spider man was always my favorite.



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


If I had to choose I would say Tony Hawk, he does so much for kids and also Rob Dyrdek, he gives so much back to the youth. I tried skating once, didn't work out well.



Who is your favorite artist, living or dead? 


Craola is my all time favorite as well as Mear One. Past artist would be Salvador Dali! 






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


I enjoy playing drums/making music. Hiking, traveling, concerts and trying new brews.



Who are your biggest influences?


Craola is a huge influence, I feel like my influences change daily, if I see something I like or something I want to strive towards that's usually where I lean. Also music is a big influence, a song or simple lyrics can paint pictures in my head. I am currently working on a huge project for 311, and also working on tour posters just for fun. 



What mediums do you enjoy working in?


Acrylic, colored pencils and inks. Spray paint is fun too!   



Anything else you want to tell?


My biggest dream come true was seeing a rare traveling museum in Barcelona Spain of Salvador Dali works, and also visiting the Louvre in Paris France.
