About Me

CURRENT MISSION

get the hell on my way already.

ABOUT ME

A sarcastic inebriated infidel. nah, only on weekends. I'm a painter and illustrator and artist of all sorts. Was living in Berlin, DE for the past year and just returned to the States last month after hitchhiking across Europe and in Morocco for the last two months before leaving. I loved Germany but a lot of things were calling me back including the homicide of a really good friend who I am now devoting my time making zines of his stories.

I have recently started an indiegogo campaign for the continued printing of the zines as well as a book in the works.

You can peep my other work at catraia.com or catraia.tumblr.com

I'm easy going, love to hitchhike and cliff jump, I like tator tot casserole and metal music. lighting fireworks off of houses, laying in the rain, partyin' in adult diapers, rescuing baby birds! top dollar!

PHILOSOPHY

Water lies flat on its stomach in a hysterical urge to submit to gravity -derrida
