"I met him, fifteen years ago. I was told there was nothing left. No reason, no conscience, no understanding; even the most rudimentary sense of life or death, good or evil, right or wrong. I met this six-year-old child, with this blank, pale, emotionless face and, the blackest eyes... the *devil's* eyes. I spent eight years trying to reach him, and then another seven trying to keep him locked up because I realized what was living behind that boy's eyes was purely and simply... *evil*"
- Dr. Samuel Loomis
You know how you can recall being really little? And it's not really a full memory, just sort of a recollection of people towering over you and couches being fortresses you could scale, perhaps even being afraid of falling from a seat? ...I've been drawing before that. And ever since, it's just sort of stuck.
Then came instruments, trombone in elementary, keyboard in jr. high, guitar declaring itself king of the hill in high school, harmonica on my own time, bass and drums whenever I can get my hands on them...I guess singing was around since I could recognize a song as a toddler.
MUSIC makes the world go round, it's a part of all of us, no matter what specific sounds we choose to listen to.
ACTING...you see your older brother in a high school show when you're a few years old, and then subconsciously you're catapulted into a world you never knew would keep you THIS busy what with performing, directing, training and designing all over the place nowadays just so you can do what you love and find a way to feed yourself.
For the record, I still have a hard time looking at myself on screen ...plus I sound silly.
Painting has always sort of been around since they said, "you can draw...help us out with this!"
Before you know it, you're the one doing all the scenic art stuff for your shows. Nowadays I love getting work where scenic design and painting are involved.
Photography, my philosophy is shoot first ask questions later ...I just need to get a new camera (miss you Olympus)
Costuming, it started as a tech class and turned into a line of work. And yet even before that I remember looking at costumes on screen and thinking "I want THAT costume! (and not the 'cheap' version you can buy localy in town)". Thus, the costumer in me was born.
What can I say? No matter how many ventures I take on, I truly feel i'm an artist at heart, I dig it, it's pure magic! What's better than sharing a little bit of magic?
Keep on keepin' on fellow Deviants!
