About

I moved to New York City in 1999 with a background in printmaking and graffiti to begin a career in oil painting and illustration. In 2005, I developed an interest in comic books and created my first book: "Thread" with Emily Benz, which was awarded the Xeric Award grant to fund its publication and nation-wide distribution. I continued drawing comics and eventually collaborated with Harvey Pekar on two full length graphic novels. Concurrently, I developed several oil painting techniques and began exhibiting new works on canvas. I have recently started painting on wood. I currently reside in Harlem and create work with the support of a chashama studio residency. My time is divided between creating oil paintings on skateboards, drawing comic books, and developing a series of sensation oriented essays about being alive in New York City. The common threads that bind my work are a devoted studio practice and an abiding interest in life as a philosophically humorous subject.
