About Me


Breathe. Don't worry be happy. Travel the world while drawing. Eat. Not to die.


I love to draw, read and travel... and you know what else. The simple things in life. Food, music, fantarcheology, Beauty in all it's forms. Balance, I'm a libra. Anything that is good or very good or great or amazing. I love things done with passion, time, effort, grace... Michael Jordan. Bonzai trees. Art from Papua New Guinea. Fanzines, Things that are not about money, Good music. Flea markets, thrift stores, Antique stores.


If life give you lemons, make some lemonade!
Carpe Diem
Don't Panic !
If a problem has no solution, why worry? If it has a solution, why worry?
Truth, freedom and beauty.
