My Bio
The art and ramblings of a disillusioned idealist.

I'm a digital artist, graphic novelist, and UC Berkeley grad with a focus on environmentalism and cyber activism.
I've illustrated and authored numerous graphic novels and plushed a few books. I'm currently working on the Axent Wear cat ear headphones that I designed.

When I'm not drawing away or dealing with the unpleasant business side of running a headphones company, I enjoy sculpting, hiking, and experimenting with aquaponics.

hey just wanted to say that all of your work so far has been amazing and even though I can't add them to my favorites due to the deviantart algorithm, they will always have a place there in my heart.

Dear DeviantArt Artists,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to you today because I would like to propose a collaboration between your artwork and my online store, Artvakato.com.

As an artist myself, I am always looking for new and unique pieces to showcase on my website. I believe that your artwork would be a great fit for my store, and I would love to offer your pieces as canvas prints for my customers.

To sweeten the deal, I am willing to offer you a 50% commission on the value of each sale made through my store. By working together, I believe we can create a mutually beneficial relationship that will help to promote your artwork and generate sales for my store. I am confident that my customers will appreciate the quality and beauty of your artwork, and I am excited to offer it to them in a new and creative way.

If you are interested in collaborating with me, please let me know. I would be happy to discuss the details further and answer any questions you may have. If you have any inquiries, please feel free to contact me at support@artvakato.com.
