My Bio
I'm slowly climbing my way out of the cave, after set-backs and blatant apathy. I'll expound about myself as I begin to upload art, which is extremely difficult as the more I age the more and more reclusive and private I become. But, I realize socialization becomes necessary to sell art, and thus EAT. :) Thank you always for dropping by!

8-31-16: I just left a voicemail with Harry Pinkney. I politely ask him to call me. As of this date he still has yet to remove my art from his website. STOLEN ARTWORK ALERT! Why other artists would put their name to my work is silly, but it happens. And it's annoying. Please read. I should point out that this one probably takes the cake for World's Most Giant Nads Award! Let me go on record to proclaim that my name is NOT, Harry J. Pinkey, jr. AND my ART was not created by a guy named Harry J.

Hey Guys, As I continue to strategize and plan out 2014, I hope you'll pause a moment and share some of your own artistic goals with us. What are your big art plans this year? Soliciting to DC Comics? Maybe considering starting up a t-shirt business? Partnering with a writer or artist? Maybe going to cons and art shows and setting up? Whatever it might be, let me encourage you to share your thoughts to inspire us all forward! Thanks so much for reading. ~Steve

Happy birthday! I hope you have a great one!
I've got to say, I'm right there with you, I'd always rather set around in my little cave drawing then socialize.

Your work is amazing and has inspired me for years.
Happy Birthday Steve!
A very belated thank you!!!
Happy Birthday!!!
