Artist Statement

For me, the way I create is: idea, design it, sketch it, paint it, do a layout, then photoshoot it. I try to keep it simple but it rarely is. When it comes to making art, airbrush is my preferred weapon of choice. Generally, there are 2 ways I use it, freehand and stencil. With using one or both these styles I can pretty much make any kind of paint-based art I want. If I add other mediums like pencil, oil, charcoal, or whatever I can get my hands on, the results I see have simply been… incredible.

As far as the content goes, what you are going to see is a lot of design on clothing, Comic based art, and the all-important “random” art. A lot of the art I try to make is loosely wrapped around the idea of “what if?” When I start down this rabbit hole I try to keep in mind that simple question, and then just go for it. I’ve learned that an aimless wondering can often bring you to some interesting conclusions.

Aimless, being part of the ingredients here, comes from when I was kid. From as early as I could remember I was always seen or being seen getting in trouble for drawing. I drew on anything and everything. Even when I wasn’t doing that I was knee-deep in cartoons, comics, science fiction, classical art, sculpture, (and maybe a strange twist) Dumas novels and other books of that nature. Being naturally introverted, reality wasn’t all that easy to deal with so the escape was obvious, imagination in as many forms as I could find. In the end the fun side effect of all that introverted head-in-the-clouds daydreaming imaginative way of growing up means when I see people always thinking inside the box, I often think…what a strange way to live.
