Middle aged guy, married, with kids.
Factory worker by day (or night, depending on the shift)
I used to draw like a madman in my youth, but as I 'matured' I became distracted and left my first love on the side of the road and moved on.
Currently on a mission to complete all the DIY projects I've left unfinished at home so I can refocus on ART, guilt free.
Favourite Visual Artist
Too many to name. Seriously. My earliest inspirations came from Boris Vallejo and comic book greats like Jim Lee, Walt Simonson, Arthur Adams, John Byrne, and many,many more. Not to mention the multitude of great artists here on dA on my watch list.
Fight Club, any Tarrantino movie, 300, Cronenbergs The Fly, The Crow, Blade Runner,District 9, 12 Monkeys, The Good The Bad and The Ugly, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Fight Club (yes, that's twice!)

Tried out the Wacom Bamboo Create on a Mac Mini. Felt awkward viewing it on a 47" screen in my living room though. Kicking around the idea of a Wacom Cintiq 22 HD
Looking at the work of all the talented artists at dA. So inspiring, if I could stop looking at it, I'd make some art of my own. Damn it! :D
