My checkered past. by Zeb Shaffer

There is a razors edge that one walks blindly along with bare feet: between the feeling of pure love and pure hate. The slightest breeze becomes a tempest that can push one to fall on ether side in the blink of an eye and send one tumbling into the chasms of the abyss. This abyss is fertile breeding ground for the creative spirit. It is often the very womb that births the greatest art.

I was born in Chicago on the 02-28-77 I spent my early childhood in San Francisco under the strict yet loving care of my parents. who where Rosicrucian priests.

At a early age i Began to draw using perspective and with lust i tought myself to draw and sculpt.

My parents would never allow action figures or toys that represented war so I began sculpting my own out of bee’s wax and many of the things i resented as a child became the very building blocks of my artistic growth.
