What do you think an artist is?

An imbecile who has only eyes, if he is a painter - or ears if he is a musician - or a lyre in every chamber of his heart if he is a poet - or even, if he is a boxer, just his muscles?

Far from it: at the same time, he is also a political being - constantly aware of the heartbreaking, passionate, or delightful things that can happen in the world - shaping himself completely in their image.

How could it be possible to feel no interest in other people, and with a cool indifference to detach yourself from the very life which they bring to you so abundantly?

No, painting is not done to decorate an apartment.

It is an instrument of war.

- Pablo Picasso


The rats have swarmed into the belfry,

and anything sane that survives

will be hurled out to sea

and stomped down

like a dwarf in a shitrain.

- Hunter S Thompson
welcome to you new watchers, and thanks for sticking around to all of you long-time loves!

after all these years i still really enjoy sharing my sketches and various art here. you’re all so sweet and to have you along on my journeys into different methods of creative media is truly a joy.

there are some fun new things in the works and once i get into it i intend to host a contest or giveaway of some sort. probably will happen once my prints are up and running. in the meantime i might take a trade if anyone wanted to message me, and commissions are also currently open.

& i’d like to form a little dialogue with anyone who might read this. c:

what would you folks like to see more of?

Welcome to one of my many online nests;

I’m a freelance multi media artist, twentysomething and birdnerd working and living in Portland, Oregon.

I constantly create art to appease my aesthetic-hungry soul,
use music, literature and nature as coping mechanisms,
& like more things than I’ll probably be able
to fully explore in my lifetime.
