"I was born in 1982. My real last name is Wintermute, which was changed when my family came to Ellis island about ten generations ago. Originally I went to school for film, at San Francisco state. After I graduated from college I started really enjoying drawing a lot more than I thought I would and it became a very therapeutic habit for me. When I turned 26 (about) I decided I should start making as much art as I could, instead of just treating it like a hobby.
I've grown a lot since then. The last few years I've been experimenting with painting and drawing on wood and paper, with a more basic organic traditional approach. Besides that, all my work has been drawn with pen&ink on paper, then colored and combined in photoshop, usually with bits and pieces of photographed objects collaged with in. Every piece on this website bares a digital watermark signature and is not the same size as the real signature on the surface of the piece. My computer crashed in early 2015, and I lost a lot of my high-resolution print files so some of the images on this site are a smaller size and cannot be reprinted."
