INFO DUMP: I have been drawing my entire life, but only started taking it seriously (with a business sense) since my dad passed away in 2013. I have come to realize more and more over the years, that, the people very close to you just want to see you at your best. A lot of times you don't push for your best until you lose one of those people very close to you, as a source of motivation, as a source to make them proud and to leave a mark on the planet. The key to all of this is YOU DON'T HAVE TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE VERY CLOSE TO YOU TO DIE IN ORDER TO BE YOUR BEST. JUST BE YOUR BEST. GO. My first loves in life were Magic the Gathering and Diablo/Diablo II. These two things have undeniably inspired not only my artistic style but also my vocabulary, attitude and a plethora of other characteristics. I create as a therapy. I create as a distraction from mundane things that seem to stick out around me. I try to find myself in every piece I do. There is a story behind it all and it's always about me. It's a selfish thing to do, sit alone and sink hours into something as small and lightweight as a drawing, let alone try to sell it afterward. I don't know what it is, but I've been doing this since I was a kid and sometimes I feel like it's all I really know.
