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.
