Introducing Scoop Neck Tees and Unisex Tanks — FIND OUT MORE

Oil and acrylic & graphite on canvas and paper. I was looking for ways to display old sketches so i took a figure sketch and burned around the edges and laid it in a bed of acrylic texture medium and then brutalized it with a pallet knife.
lately i have been using my more substandard works for more violent experimentation although i personally still see the work as substandard and destroy-able it is a great tool for experimentation
if you like this work i will part with the original very cheap so make an offer.


texture, portrait, dark art, figure drawing

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.
