When I was really young, and I got the question "what do you want to be when you grow up?" My immediate response was a dinosaur. When I got a little older, after immersing my brain in hours upon hours of Saturday morning cartoons, anime, comics, video games and the like, I wanted to make characters for a living. This evolved as I grew and was exposed to more aspects of visual arts (mainly graff), and as much as I tried, I just could not harness the raw energy and composition that writers could wield. The more I learned that there are endless possibilities when it comes to the visual arts field (design, illustration, typography, etc.), the more time I dedicated to fleshing out my personal style and eye for my own interpretation of art. I think the main thing I pulled away from graff was color choice and application. Although I'm horrible at lettering, I think my eye for color can be traced back to all the pieces and tags I used to spend hours staring at on the tracks in my neighborhood. I'm not sure how to explain it, but I'm much more drawn to work that is almost palpable... Chunky in a way. I don't know if that makes any sense to anyone.

I got extremely comfortable in using vector as my primary tool for rendering, even though I absolutely abhorred it when I first came across it. I didn't think there was any skill involved in it, until again, I found more and more that there are so many ways to approach its usage. It's a medium, just like oils, acrylics, colored pencils, human waste, or anything else people have used to express their work. I think as long as you put your own flare and interpretive style into it, no one can really tell you what you're doing isn't art.

So anyway, I spend my days as a full-time print designer and part-time illustrator... I've been (forever) trying to develop a comic based on some personal experiences, just channeled into a more extreme form. I suck at sequentials, so it's been really difficult; not to mention writing in a way that flows to keep someone's attention is equally challenging.

I have a wonderful family ( a wife, 2 boys and a girl), and a pretty nice place to call my own, in a pretty decent town. I'm a city boy, so it's still taking me a while to get used to the calm of the suburbs, but my family loves it so I'll manage. I generally waste whatever remainder of my day is left on video games and re-watching old flicks that I've seen a million times.

I'm not sure what else I could babble about... If I think of anything else, I'm sure I'll add it. Read Less
My friend Jason and I decided we were tired of seeing our work being ripped off, hacked and sold half-assed, so Dead Inks, Etc. came about to cut out those undesired middlemen and women.

My friend Jason and I decided we were tired of seeing our work being ripped off, hacked and sold half-assed, so Dead Inks, Etc. came about to cut out those undesired middlemen and women. We are both huge horror and cult film fans (mainly anything having to do with zombies), and we offer a variety of products based off of the art we create to show our love for the genre. We have a selection of prints and shirts available, but if you see anything you like that isn't up there, there's always a way to get them produced.
