In 2012 I left my full time job and moved in to a warehouse. I built myself a modest screen print shop, and spent a majority of the next three years drawing things by hand, printing a bunch of editions by hand, and then throwing them in a flat file just for the hell of it. It’s basically a bunch of dumb skulls and shit, but I developed my skills and style and the ability to envision and then execute an idea with my hand and a pencil. It was fun, liberating, exciting, and therapeutic. I think I grew a ton during this period as far as how I approach ideas, and I apply both that approach and the technical illustration skills to all of my projects and work. In my opinion, the presence of the creator’s hand instantly individualizes any piece of work. Below is a sampling of that work.
