What/ Who Inspires you?
Seeing other artists definitely inspires me, and knowing that I can always be better every single day.  My dad who recently passed away is a great inspiration as well.  Every day I want to be able to think that I’ve made my dad proud. Other than that, everything inspires me, from music, to movies, photography, comics, video games, even cartoons.

How long have you been an artist?
I’ve been drawing ever since I was 5 to pass the time in class, but I’ve only started to take this whole art thing seriously 9 years ago.
Do you have a fave artist? If so who?
I have soooo many favorite artists and people that I artistically look up to.  Naming them all would take forever. But I love the art of LeSean Thomas, I love ActionHankBeard’s (Nuri Durr) art, Ron Ackin’s of Diggys Daily blog on tumblr, Phil Noto, Artgerm, Jim Lee and Ryan Ottley.

If you could sum up your art in three words what would they be?
