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
I want to know how each one of you that reads this first happened upon my art / this page,
and in exchange I will give you a fictional two-word surrealist indie band name.

Come on. This will be fun!

Hi there!
Welcome to one of my many online nests,

I’m a freelance illustrator and general human being based on the outskirts of Portland.

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