|Sometimes I worry that I positively suck as an artist... But I am always concerned that someday I may not work from that type of motivation.|
I find it difficult to speak about myself in a biographical sense.... I never really know what information is pertinent and what isn't... As I attempt to type and backspace I find myself always becoming concerned with transmitting impressions of myself that are horribly inaccurate.... I value words, I value communication and I don't take the business lightly.. No sir....|
That being said, I'm going to play it safe and keep this brief and factual.
I was born roughly a quarter century ago to a family in which art was just a fact of life. Not much unlike how hunting and fishing was to other boys I knew. As early as I could remember, value was placed on improving my capabilities as in artist in different mediums. Fast forward a number of tumultuos years and I discover tattooing around the age of 17. I did an apprenticeship and decided it just wasn't time to take life seriously yet and proceeded to go out of my mind for the next 6 or 7 years... I never stopped doing art.... I was just too busy screwing around and playing music to take visual art as seriously as I should have....
But through a series of events that played out like a well scripted dark comedy, I got my act togeather so to speak.... I rediscoverred my first love, which was visual art, and got back into tattooing... I suppose you could say, I always knew I would, I just never had the discipline to buckle down and take it as seriously as I needed to and now that I have, I found the most rewarding career and life I could have ever have hoped for..... The most lovely part of the whole thing, I feel, as that I've only just scratched the surface.
