Drawing and being creative in some form or fashion is truly what motivates me, keeps me sane I guess you might say. It's certainly what keeps me focused. I honestly cannot remember a time where I have not had a pencil or brush in my hand (or at least nearby), or looking at someone or something and not thinking about how I could capture it on paper and taking a snapshot of that particular moment. I absolutely love and crave the intensity it takes to sometimes just get it in a sketchbook and look back on it, studying how I could make it better, what I could do to get more life out of it and even sometimes the urge not to throw it against a wall and scream. To say I am obsessed with sketching is probably an understatement and it truly is an impulsive gesture. A raw moment that you can't over think or dwell too much about or you'll lose the character. People fascinate me. Their actions. Their clothes. Their demeanor and swagger. Reading a book, drinking a cup of coffee, sitting on a bus or just standing there... it doesn't matter. I find creative opportunity in everything and I use it to make some sort of visual statement, even if the rest of the world never sees it. I live for those moments but when I am not drawing I am working as an art director or designer and love creating advertising materials that make clients feel the same way. I feel very fortunate to be able to work in a creative field that allows me to think differently and really make a difference in how a particular client is seen from a perspective customer. I am also a new father of two and have a wonderful wife that supports all of my nonsense and Pro-Art purchases for which I hardly ever use, other than a pencil and brush here and there, and I thank her for that.
