My Bio
I was born in 1984 and currently married to Mahkohime. I have been interested in art since an early age and it just has never stopped. I studied Graphic Design and Illustration in college which lend me to my current job as a graphic designer at a small business. I have been told I have a artist approach to my graphic work maybe due to the fact I love drawing and illustration. As you can tell from my devID I love many forms of art ranging from traditional work with pencil, markers, and ink to digital work using Photoshop, Illustrator, Painter, and Apophysis.

My other projects include a novel I have been working on for years and started writing it finally earlier in 2012. I have been keeping updates on it in my journal. It is a mix of a cyberpunk setting with a thriller detective narrative involving a drug whose side effects might grant a person super powers. Many of the characters have mental issues from this drug. It is hopefully going to be a complex brain thinker of a book when I am finished writing it. Hopefully, I can create some graphics for it soon. Also, I play around with music either on my keyboards or using Sony Acid Music Studio, which has been sometime since I have played with either. Later I will hook up a link here to my music, so if people are interested they can check that out.

If you want to know more about me or ask me a question feel few to send me a note.

Thank you for stopping to checkout my page and I hope you have a nice day.

Journal: Hello everyone, I am more active here, but I am also trying to be more active on Artician and Facebook. I have been posting more of my artwork into the groups I am part, which in turn has gotten me a lot of faves and such in return. Thanks all for that. Also, taking more time to go through and fave others works. Sorry for not leaving many comments. I used to be better at that, but that was before I was working 48-52ish hours between two jobs. I like working the two jobs on some levels, but others it is very draining and time consuming. Trying to find a single job to replace the two I have. I am hoping to drive myself to draw more
