I am an artistic samurai. Molded from the clay

of God’s unique design. My thoughts and

imagination travel the Intergalactic highways

of the vast cosmos. Any tool that I use to create

with is considered to be my “sword”. Each

stroke is like a sword’s slash that gives birth to

a new line; as my imagination spills forth on to

the surfaces that can withstand my patient,

meticulous, energetic, artistic fury. The

underground fighting spirit of Hip Hop, the

punk rebelliousness of Rock and Roll, Abstract

Expressionism, Science Fiction, and Japanese

Manga are my artistic roots. My journey as an

artistic samurai is one of joy, frustration, and

evolution. It is my responsibility to create and

educate in the most imaginative fashion

ushering in the next generation of bright,

young, artists. Climbing to the mountaintop is

a beautiful struggle, with God as my guide; I

push forward overcoming life’s unexpected

curveballs and challenges.
