Just spent the past while thinking about what to write in my bio for my #Patreon account, only for it to get cut it in half when I hit "save". Thank God the back button didn't bring me back to a blank text field; my whole message still remained. Posting it here now, so as not to feel like I just spent my time introspecting for nothing.


'Sup. I'm skillustrate. NY-born & mostly raised, but received mail all over.

I was brought up lovingly, but also rather strictly. As a small child, I learned early on that speaking my mind and sharing my thoughts were synonymous with crossing the line in my family; and the rod was not always spared. Solution? Shut the f☆ck up. Become a clam.
Instead of voicing my opinions or showing out, I embraced the sketchbook (literally and metaphorically), as well as secrecy.

I believe that that repression had a pressure-cooking effect on me; it made it so that art bleeds into and/or dictates everything that I do —sometimes even to a fault— and when it doesn't, I'm just not content. Basically, in one form or another, I bleed art; from writing and designing, to drama and music— even the Venu- ...Well, we'll leave that one alone. 👍

Anyway, as I was saying: Music! It entwines with writing and writing locks arms with wordplay.
Being a Monster of the Double Entendre myself, wordplay influences a great deal of my artwork. As such, often times the references made therein —visually and otherwise— remain cryptic to, and unexplored by part of my audience. However, this is NOT a problem! I maneuver around it by doing my current-best to make sure any piece I create —no matter how esoteric— appeals to more than just the audience it was directly intended for.

In other words, if I painted a still life of a tofu dinner, my aim would've been to make an African lion drool over it. And if I fell short there, my second priority was to at least make it so that Mr. Lyin'-Ass Lion was lyin' (like a barcode! OHHH~) if he couldn't look at it and admit he would benefit from even a bit more calcium in his diet. Ya dig?

tl;dr - iHeart, but as for drawing, what I currently lack in understanding and/or technical know-how, I try to make up for with wit.
