As an artist/Illustrator, I find that Art has a way of helping me relax,and be totally stress free.
It's a God given talent given to those who he desired to give it to. It is a way of making life colorful and beautiful. It's a smile ready to surface on an otherwise dismal canvas. It's a way of life. It repairs me when I am emotionally drain,and uplifts those around me,when what I do causes a smile or two.
Cartoons depict the lighter side of an otherwise chaotic living. It a little levity in which to fill an empty day.
I love doing cartoons,and I have chosen this field to express my inner child. Hope you love what I have drawn.
Surrealism is a way in which my soul takes a walk to another place,created by me,and understood by me only.
And then allowed to flow as a ink from a pen,colored by mystery,and intrigue. This is where I am allowed to give my papers or my canvasses a bath in beauty,and imagination.
