Story
Tagline
I think I exist but I could be wrong and if I am, who am I to care?
Introduction
i am probably best known on Google Plus for my Speedpaint Hangouts though I haven't hosted them nearly as frequently as of late. For more information about them please read the FAQ at the bottom of this page. 

I am a candy maker by day and an artist by night.
 Actually that isn't true at all. I am an artist 24/7 and I technically work night-shift making candy.

Random facts about me:
- I love to theorize about business and accurately predicted Boston Market's downfall 2 years before they sold out to McDonald's
- I am a self-deprecating narcissist 
- I have a very warped sense of humor
- I am a big GWAR fan. 
- I am an optimist with a healthy sense of paranoia The glass is half full, but with what exactly?
- I work for Mars Inc making M&Ms but in no way shape or form speak for them. The opinions expressed here are entirely my own. 
- I can hold mutually exclusive thoughts in my head.
- I don't drink/ smoke/ eat brussel sprouts
- I don't particularly like sports.- I have artwork for sale here


I am a moderator for three communities:
Digital Painting
G+ Caricature Community:
Gwar Friends and Fans

Speedpaint Hangout Interview Thing 1st episode

Speedpaint Hangout FAQ:

Q: How do I get on the list to be Speedpainted?
A: Express your interest to me and I will add you to my 'To Be Speedpainted Circle' which gets invited into my Speedpaint Hangouts first.  Then just pop into one my Speedpaint Hangouts and you _might_ get painted.  Alternatively you can pay me $40 and you _will_ be painted. 

Q: How often do you do Speedpaint Hangouts?
A: Nowadays infrequently. Their unexpected boost to my popularity had the great side-effect of boosting the number of commissions I get. This in turn takes away from hangout time. That being said I love hosting them and will do them when I can.

Q: How do we find out when you are doing them?
A: On rare occasions I will schedule them a day or so in advance like I did for the Cliffathon but most of the time about 15 minutes prior to holding one I will let my 'Kickstarter Backers' circle know followed by my 'To Be Speedpainted' circle. After giving these circles a chance to get in the Hangout I will invite other circles in.

Q: How long do the speedpaints take?
A: It varies on whether I am focusing more on speed or quality in my quest to narrow the gap between the two. I have done them in as little as 10 and as long as an hour. For those who pay I make sure I focus on the quality aspect rather than the speed. 

Q: How much do you charge?
A:  I don't charge for the speedpaints themselves. I charge for the guarantee of getting one. For that it is $40. 

For fully rendered pieces such as those in this album:

prices start at $400 and go up.

Q: I know your speedpaints are free but I want to tip you, what is the best way to do that?
A: Glad you asked! I have a wishlist on Amazon. Feel free to order me something from it!

Q: What hardware/software do you use?
A:
    Paint program: Photoshop CS5
    Manipulating the pixels on screen: I use a Wacom Cintiq 21UX




Bragging rights
I have 6 kids. I caught Jizmak's drumstick at the end of a Gwar concert in Montclair NJ. At 17 I accurately predicted the downfall of Boston Market while working there. Won a department store Easter coloring contest when I was a kid though I don't recall at what age.

I have been snapping fairly regularly. If you are on there check out my story.  Thus far I have been updating it more than anything else. Its a peak behind the proverbial curtain at my world.
