I hope you know I not only cartoon but also draw, paint, and create t-shirts, etc. You can check out my new store HERE.

I often paint these kinds of paintings to help me feel something. Or they are expressions… manifestations… of deep emotions that need expression.

Often, they have to do with my sense of loneliness, or solitude, or freedom, or independence… but I’ve noticed over the years that they are always peaceful and serene. I think that’s a good thing.

Art, for me, is the most powerful way to get in touch with my emotions and with myself. Paintings, music, poetry, dance, film, etc… they all can make me feel alive again. They can raise me from the death of not feeling and the grave of hopelessness.

My hope is that they might help you get in touch with the same important and necessary emotions too.

Enjoy!
