“I’ve accepted my fate that I may very well die in obscurity and I’ve accepted it. I’m happy with it. I thought, well, I have two options: One could either quit or I could keep going because I love doing it. When I made that decision, I started having more fun because I’m not playing to anyone, except for myself.”

Thanks to social media, I hooked up with this expressive, compelling artist that was so full of dichotomies, uniquely talented and esoteric, I just had to know his story. Many have told me that this is one of my more entertaining pieces. I just paint the portrait with what colors the subject gives me — and this guy gave me a palette-ful. Lots of fun. He’s turned out to be one of my favorite people.
