Autobiography

By birth my name is Jared N. Blauer, but my pseudo name is Graveyard. I was born in 1978 in Modesto, California. I am an artist. I first approached art in 1997. I first started making photographs and then moved onto drawing and painting. I currently make more paintings than photographs. In the near future I hope to have it reversed. I have lived in South Korea from 2004 to 2009 then moved to Indonesia from 2009-2011, and currently live in Fresno CA where I have been since June 2011.

A Dream Past

In my sleep I see the world. It looks so small from my vantage point. I am mighty and you are weak as I am a giant among men in my dreams. When I sleep, I dream big dreams of other lands. In those lands I am the king who rules the land. As the king, I choose what happens as I am the one who makes the rules in this land. In my land, sweet little kittens eat cotton candy while young babies drink ch…
