My Bio
Greetings, Mortals to my humble page.

Who am I
I'm a successful conservative Libertarian, egoist millionaire, and aloof recluse living in the City of Bozeman in the south-east hills 5 minutes from Downtown. My wife and I went from $10K in pocket to where we are now in 10yrs, God bless the American Dream!

I'm a pious Catholic artist (and horror artist) of German/Irish decent and I've been with my amazing wife since 89. I'm a diabetic, and my mood moves with my blood sugar. We don't attend church, but maintain a home chapel.

We have no children, as we both are too selfish and codependent with each-other that we realized a child would just be a distraction to us. We dealt with children as children, why deal with them now?

We are madly in love and best friends and just prefer the company of each-other.

My wife and I own our own company and own a few of pieces of property in Bozeman where we live. Our store can be found on Main Street and we live a humble yet opulent life in our dream house, Arkham Mansion.

I'm an artist and a gamer and look to soon publish some RPG supplements (Mostly based on Lovecraft under my side company Arkham Antiquities). Currently we are concentrating on getting our Hyborian Collection, of functional prop weapons, and gear from our home foundry and smithy up.

I make a very good living running an unconnected corporation so making a profit in the publishing/propmaking industry is unimportant, it's more of a labor of love than anything else. I expect to make money....but profits are just gravy to my primary income.

What is Arkham Antiquities
It will be a publisher of Lovecraftian RPG weapons, props, adventures and supplements for ANY game based on H.P. Lovecrafts writing and works in common as well as those of R.E. Howard.

A prop house and art house of Cthuliana and esoteric art.

Much much more...

Style
I'm developed my own style I'll get a drawing to where I basically want, make copies and experiment adding on so as not to destroy my progress, scanning and re-scanning as I add layers. It adds depth and eases my nerves.

I see art as a way of life, I sculpt and carve stone,plaster,clay,wood and whatever can be worked. I draw and paint. Most of my painting is using medieval methods with egg tempera paints that I make.

I carve soapstone molds to cast pewter jewelry, buckles, pilgrims badges and other medieval and RPG themed items. I work bone from dinosaur to human, and ivory from narwhal to mammoth.

I'm a carpenter and woodworker, I make furniture and can pretty much build anything given the time. That said I'd rather hire others as it gives me more time to spend with the wife.

Other
I own a large collection of Firearms, from Broomhandled Mauser to Tommygun to AK47 to AR15s and an AR10. I collect militaria, antique books and anything related to Call of Cthulhu or R.E. Howard.

I hate noise, and thus the suburbs as many in the suburbs show little class in controlling barking dogs, or worse their yelling idiotic children. (Parasites who only raise property taxes by spawning more, lol) .

I hate the suburbs, the culture or lack of it as it debases the soul and brings a crudeness to my life. This is why I moved from the Suburbs to the Hills in true roman use of the word.

Other men can be stacked as cord wood in the city or suburbs drowning in the mire of clamor, a septic tank containing the din of the masses...but I'm an Artist and need spacious and broad vistas. When I need the toile...city it's just 5 minutes away. With zero backups.

Getting back to modeling
Modeling is a hobby I enjoy, especially creating my own models. A while back I bought my wife hundreds of 1/72 scale miniatures, and moulds to make houses..I even sculpted a Hill Dwarven brewery complete with outbuildings. (Is it up here? I'll bet I never posted it.) Anyhoo I just bought, well ordered a 3d printer pen, tons of pla, and the silicon mat to start being a Creator from the Future, as it's 2020... I'll be able to sculpt the fly, mod models, props and find other uses undreamed of. I want to start working on the Linka molded parts using the 3d pen to add in floors, interior timberwork, structure (as it will let me get everything square) and custom features. I'm thinking stairs, chimney, gargoyles, moving doors, fireplaces (w/LEDs), odd timbers, signs, and ironworks would all fit the pen perfectly. I bought bulk plastic in white marble to match the dental plaster used in the linka parts. I ordered assorted colors in every color for other uses but intend on painting

Mr. Out of touch
My family's crazy and barely functional, that's why we fled NY waaaaay back. My brothers both lived with their momma's all their lives, my brother in law part of his life, and they're all politically radical and ranting in real life. My brother in law has had issues with drinking and the law (he's a communist who enjoys ripping off his customers) and my other brothers are either racist or insane...though not dangerously. But one is openly delusional, and also a communist, and the other says cringy racist shit and is a pagan. My wife and I are the only "normal" people in our family. Mr. Nice Guy When I was in the hospital a couple of years ago it made me reexamine my life and try to be a nicer person. I stopped doing some of the art that was admittedly creepy and tried to be less "burned earth" with my enemies and business competition. I think I've done that; my art's less offensive, life is calmer at home and at work. ( I rarely go to work now, I'm mostly puttering about with the dog

Scary True History Doppleganger
Long Island New York, the mid to late 1980s. I was a teenager growing up in the suburbs, playing AD&D games and reading comics . I had a $20-30 a week addiction to comic books, I'd have the local comic shop pull and hold all my titles so I'd not miss any. A huge paper bag of comics I'd pickup, or sometimes my mom would every Friday. It was super convenient. Except when my comics were mixed up with my Doppleganger, another lad my age with the exact same name as mine, first and LAST name being the same as myself. Worse was the comic book guy said we looked similar and we collected almost the same comics. It was annoying but I dealt with it for years then stop reading comics and stopped thinking about it. It was in 1987 when the doppelganger reappeared. Keep in mind I never met my doppleganger and my only knowledge of him comes from the comic store. in 1987 I was at the corner store to my house with my two friends. I've been to the corner store all my life until then and knew the
