And okay, these aren't so important...
Hi! Welcome to my DA Page. I've been drawing since I was ankle-high to an otter, cartooning since 2006 and learning everything I can. |
I have lots of sources of inspiration like Gary Larson, kevinbolk, humon, Warner Brothers cartoons, public radio and cognitive science. I'm always looking for new material and challenging new projects.
I'm a moderator for the-devart-comics where I publish Gutter Stars smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , a series of editorial interviews with dedicated webcomic authors who could use some more exposure.
I also created the Critoons group to help me give back to the community and keep my commitment to write critiques for other artists every month.
I'm a big believer in progress smolderingremains.deviantart.c… , both in my work smolderingremains.deviantart.c… and in the world at large! Whatever you're doing, do it bold, take risks, make mistakes and learn from them, and you can change the world!
I created the DFWTX group and was the local liaison for Texasdevmeet because I wanted to meet more artists in my home town. Since then I purchased my first home in Dayton, Ohio!
I was born and raised in Dallas TX. There's a statue of my great-great grandfather, George Bannerman Dealey in downtown Dallas in Dealey Plaza just across the street from the old red courthouse museum. He was the editor and later owner of the Dallas Morning News and a great person who really helped to build the community, stood up to the KKK and stood up for people facing hardships. Heck, when he owned the newspaper, he refused advertising money from oil companies because he couldn't tell the difference between a good oil company and a bad one and didn't want sham oil companies advertising to his patrons.
And now I'll leave you with one of my favorite quotes from Bob Dylan: any man not busy being born is busy dying.
