My Bio
Artist....illustrator, I guess. The "artist" part may refer to the stuff I do when the illustration jobs dry up. I do a lot of children's books but mostly they are of the mundane kind.

If you go to the dentist and get a comic on how to brush your teeth...yeah that's me.

Not saying I have not done cooler things I had a couple of books produced by National Geographic:

Hiawatha and Megissogwon
&
Midnight Ride of Paul Revere

...but the really neat jobs are 1 in 30.

I also keep a Zazzle Store (Odin on a T-Shirt or Mug for instance):

Xochicalco's Ruin


I like to travel. I like cities. I like civilizations in ruins. I love vintage design and the term Raygun Gothic to describe my interior design style. Radios, cameras...typewriters. Mid-century debris.

I am shy...a bit aloof. Friendly essentially. I love to wander and to tinker with things.

Left wing Scandinavian style socialist. Sadly well read and yet a still somewhat independent slacker with very strong work ethic.

I drink pots of tea.

I guess I exist in the cultural art strata of Baltimore with the musicians and writers.

My semi -feral cat treats me like prey after sunset.

You're welcome. Stay Awesome :D
Your art is really characterful, I am glad I found  your gallery. :)
I love your work! I've actually seen some of your Norse stuff on several Facebook groups but I'm happy I've found the artist! I was wondering how you would react to someone (me) getting tattooed with your work?
Happens all the time. As long as you are not a tattoo artist profiting from my work I have no problem. Anyone that wants to slap one of my images on their skin is welcome too as long as they are doing it for their own personal enjoyment.
