What kind of wood do you use?
Birch and maple, mostly. I alternate between handmade (by me, that is) birch panels, pre-made birch and maple panels, and solid poplar. I use a jigsaw and Dremel to
What media do you use?
Watered down acrylics, colored pencils, and gouache. I also use acrylic ink when I paint on watercolor paper. I have been known to use oil paint occasionally.
Where do you get your inspiration?
It can't be pinned down to a single source, but namely scientific illustration, world myths and folklore, videos games, pop culture, and cartoons. And skulls.
How long have you been an artist?
Unlike most other artists, I didn't really start getting into art and drawing until my late teens. I drew as a kid, but who didn't? I've been selling art for 10 years now.
How do you feel about people getting tattoos of your work?
I think it's great and I want to see a picture when it's finished!
Do you do tattoos?
Where did you get your prints/decks/books/etc made?
I make all of my prints and prints on wood in my studio. I don't share my printing and publishing contacts. Making your own contacts is part of the fun!
I saw someone copying/selling/posting your art somewhere.
Contact me privately about it. I'm not a fan of online witch hunts.
Will you help me with my Kickstarter project?
Probably, but you've got to give me a week or two before you launch so I can have time to look it over and give you some advice.
Will you ever do a show in (my city)?
I'm always looking for new places to go and new art festivals. If you know of one near you, let me know about it!
