Growing up, I immersed myself in graffiti culture. I've always been fascinated by the shear audacity in use of bold colors and raw subject matter. Later, I began heavily studying the illustration and design work of the late 19th and early 20th century. It still amazes me how artists at the time were able to capture the level of intricate detail without the aid of a computer.
One of my favorite pieces of work I've done is a piece entitled "Analog Groove." Designed for T-shirts and prints, it was my attempt to fuse together urban aesthetics with traditional art nouveau.
I am most excited about an alphabet book I am currently putting together. For each letter I've illustrated a corresponding hairstyle in the shape of that letter.
If I had more free time I would like to create a graphic novel. There are dozens of stories floating around in my head.
