I'm still alive. I've been very busy but not painting. I did sell a couple though. Brooklyn Bridge, St. Basil's Cathedral and that Batman/Joker one.

I'm currently illustrating flash fiction over at the Story Shack. Check em out.

Not even drawing much. But I am alive. Trying to figure out a way to re-make this website to make it a bit more interactive.

For now you can find me on youtube or twitter
