Richard Nixon - from my celebrity caricature series. Unlike many pieces shown here, this one used no eraser, and no photoshop. It is 100% original.

Due to somewhat rough mating habits, a female gecko will rarely walk away from *** with her tail intact... but at least the poor girl doesn't have to sit down.

One of nine in a series of redrawn classic movie posters. I replaced the '*** icon' movie stars with real people I found in New York City, in an attempt to challenge society's conception of beauty.

About Me:
Artist Statement:

Call me an illustrator or a graphic artist,
But I do art for survival, not money.

Give me any tool -- be it pastel, paint, paper, or pen,
Give me any assignment -- illustrating animal intelligence, advertising a concert, making a children's book;
I will always show my true colors.

For beneath my job title lie a deep passion for creation and a love of color,
An eccentric sense of humor,
As well as a zen acceptance of life
And an intense appreciation for the natural beauty surrounding me;
A beauty as free as oxygen and sunlight,
If we only know how to see it --
This I convey through a humanist quality to my work;
To abandon it would mean abandoning myself.

I live art, I breathe art, and through art, I embrace my existence.
