I am self taught, with an imagination that will not stop. I started drawing as a kid, and dabbled with correspondence art school but never took art in high school or college because I felt it might constrain me. I was wrong, but no crying over spilled milk.

    Brilliant Randy. The lengths you go to to get your shots, setting fire to your own car is real dedication. Seriously, really great image. Cheers.Tony.
