Just your average creative type trapped in the body of a biomedical engineering major. My life is a balance between the hard, smooth lines of facts and my frayed-edge penchant for retaliatory artwork.
I like to write/read comics and short stories as well as pursue just about every sort of creative endeavor I can get a hold of (painting, sketching, knitting, silk-screening, origami, gastronomy, special effects makeup, woodworking, sculpture, stickers, tailoring, henna just to name a few that I have dabbled in so far with mixed levels of success).
Feel free to drop me a message if you want to talk about something (bonus points if you are from an exotic land like the Mid-west or Canada).

About my artwork (aside from the occasional sketches which are self explanatory): People probably see my drawings and think that I am just a street legal vandal or a bully with a marker.
The way I see it though, I am just responding to the media telling me what to think. I have heard of the practice of “talking to books” in the past where basically people feel the need to respond to what a novel tells them by writing comments in the margins. What I am doing is essentially the same thing.
Magazines, especially fashion magazines, present me with a bunch of ideas that they believe I should consider as part of my life (how I should look, who I should idolize, how to behave etc) and I feel the need to reply to them by altering the images. Many times I point out how absurd things can seem in other context but most of the time I like to go with my gut to fill in what I really see in the picture. It is a habit/hobby I have had for years now. I simply buy the mags and draw on them.
