I'm an artist, illustrator, writer, and designer, from Kansas City, MO.
I've been on DeviantArt for a long time (11 years--really?), but there have been at least a couple of gaps in my involvement. The site is very different from when I first signed up, and I've seen hands change several times. I keep coming back because I like having the additional venue for my work and enjoy the sense of community (though I'm less involved than I used to be). I've made a lot of wonderful connections through dA Lit in particular.
I primarily post my fine art and illustration work to my gallery, though I occasionally post some samples of my writing. I tend to keep my graphic/web design work separate; you can find samples on my website
Currently I'm focusing more attention on my fine art, with the hopes of eventually having a show or entering a residency. I am looking at other venues and opportunities as well. Most of my work is in pen & ink, more recently graphite, and the style has often been compared to old wood cuts/engravings. My subject matter is apparently narrative and symbolic while evading simple readings. Many of my references are drawn from religious concepts and symbolism, along with esoteric fields like tarot and alchemy. You can view my artist statement and resume here
Besides working on my fine art, I am seeking a fulltime job and finishing the rough draft of my second novel. My fiction is largely speculative, much of it taking place 500 years in the future on another planet in a city obsessed with the past. That's the simple version anyway.
For those who are fond of silly lists of influences and inspirations, here's a few: Barry Moser, Peter Milton, Alejandro Jodorowsky, Terry Gilliam, William Blake, Remedios Varo, Dino Valls, C.G. Jung, Vincent Van Gogh, Edvard Munch, German/Austrian Expressionism, Northern Renaissance, outsider/visionary art, Leonard Cohen, Nick Cave, Tom Waits, Michael Gira, Philip K.
