Before my incarceration, I couldn't draw so much as a stick figure. I got locked up and needed a way to make money, so I started tattooing, doing the same generic "death art" you see on so many sleeves. Eventually I started looking at the tattoo magazines.
Seeing all the amazing work that was being produced. Before that, tattoos were just a rebellious statement. But from then on, they were an amazing new way to express myself. 
I started drawing all I could, to make sure I could put out the best art I could. Being a more "happy-go-lucky", I gravitated toward comical subjects and illustration. A lot of my art still contains darker themes, but with a twist that gives a lighter spin. I may live in a dungeon, but my art takes me to a happier place.

I started drawing at a young age, scribbling on my parents walls and usually getting myself into a bit of trouble. I always found myself sketching different things, on and off, through periods of my life. But I never thought that art would ever lead me places. As I became older, the light of art slowly began to fade. I always knew that I was good at creating something magnificent with my hands, but I had so much on my plate I never really had time to sit down and focus on drawing.

Coming to prison has given me that time to finally re-ignite that passion of art I’ve held captive for such a long time. In the past, I’ve learned a few tricks of the trade, and have critiqued my skills to a point that I feel the rest of the world should see. I’m proud of how much I’ve flourished and grown in art, and I am ready to share a piece of what I have to offer.
