My artwork is an attmept to find some beauty in this mess called existence. These illustrations are a part of that. I've been a fan of fringe culture from my earliest days. Among the artists I admire most: Wendy Pini (Elfquest), Barry Blair (Elflord), Chuck Palahniuk (Choke), Bill Burroughs, Tennessee Williams, Patty, Elliot and Kevin Smith, the Superflat artists such as Nara and Groovisions and a slew of anime/manga artists. I'm 26, work in a bookstore and have been attending university on and off for the past eight years. 'Writing is just that: not an escape from reality, but an attempt to change reality, so (the) writer can escape the limits of reality.' - William S. Burroughs, Last Journals, 2 December 1996
