I am a artist. That doesn't mean I make art, it means I HAVE to make art. From the time I was a little kid, whenever there was paper and something to draw with, I would draw. I think of myself as an obsessive compulsive doodler. I draw, it's just what I do. Recently, my eyes have been not feeling well, at it was literally causing me pain to draw. But I couldn't not draw. I was pulled to art like a moth to a flame. People often ask me if I want to pursue it, like for a career. Well, of course I do; it's the only thing that I truly enjoy.

"...Captivity shared is but half captivity."

~The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexander Dumas

To Be or Not To Be

To be oneself, or not to be oneself: that is the question:
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous ridicule,
Or to take arms against a sea of scoffers,
And by opposing end them? To be criticized: to be ill-thought of;
No more; and to be ill-thought of, to say we end.

The Sun and the Leaf

This is one of my all time best photographs.


"Do not always brood over what is impossible, or you will be mad in a fortnight."

The jailer, in The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexander Dumas.

He's right, you know....

"Man does not appear to me to be intended to enjoy felicity unmixed; happiness is like the enchanted places where dagons defend the entrance; and monsters to be overcome."

Edmond Dantes, The Count of Monte Cristo, by Alexander Dumas.

I'm pretty sure this is some place in Michigan...


It's kinda like that.


"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster." - Friedrich Nietzsche

So, I hate Friedrich Nietzsche, but this quote is very, very true.

Isn't is a glorious thought to know that one is loved?
