I do not consider myself an artist, i'm an illustrator of my own ideas. The ideas are intended for intrusion into reality in some way or another. Ultimately, i'm an aspiring city state ruler, i used to be interested in global domination, but i think the smaller, more homogeneous population allows for more exciting, stranger cultural explorations. If you rule the world, you have to contend with every kind of person, if it's just a city state, you've got less to manage. Anyhow, i got my start with all this designing worlds for old fashioned pen & paper role playing games. The guys who did the art for the old Dungeons & Dragons & Games Workshop products were my first inspirations as an artist, & remain my principal inspirations. Their styles are generally unpolished & obviously home-grown, not directed by the theoretical trappings of art school or the high-art world. I like old Punk Rock & Heavy Metal art for the same reason. So, my latest series of black & white drawings go straight back to those foundations. I've got a show of stuff i've done for the last year or so, along with work from my wife & Goblinko partner Katie at the Museum of Unfine Art, here in Eugene, Oregon.
