We all communicate through words as words translate into visuals. My images are my words.
I believe in drawing not as mere media or style, but rather as the ultimate way to deliver ideas; a combination of self-expression with an essentially bold and direct interaction with the viewer.
As a visual artist as well as an idealist, I comprehend almost everything through subtlety, optimism and humor. I play with universal ideas as I watch them mock my existence.
I ultimately simply continue an infinite dialogue on a blank piece of paper.
