Graphite Pencil drawing on clayboard. I love drawing on clayboard, it has no tooth so the pencil details aren't absorbed by paper but instead stand out in detail.
My interest in art started at a very young age, winning my first design contest at age 5 when I drew the Apple Jacks characters from the back of a cereal box. I believe I actually got paid in cash, a five dollar bill. My interest in typography also started at an early age, taking the Philadelphia subway to school and back in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Only an hour train ride from New York City, graffiti in Philly began at the same time as NYC. I remember checking for new styles daily on the subways, watching the bubble letter style evolve into the wildstyle. It was a magical feeling, watching the birth and evolution of graffiti, and I'm glad I was there. I remember writers such as Credit, JayCee, Met, Tap, Bucks, and Espo.
From there I earned a Certificate of Completion from the Philadelphia School of Art, and a Bachelor's Degree from the University of Oregon, and have been pursuing my passion for art in one form or another ever since.
