Bewildering Stories biography
It’s well known that an artist becomes more popular by dying, so I’m typing this with one hand while pummeling my head with a frozen mackerel with the other. I have been staff writer and artist for two local newspapers, the Atlanta Suburban Reporter and the Fulton County News-Daily.
I do art and graphic design in Adobe Photoshop, please view some at my website. The other mediums I use are: charcoal (messy, but strongly sets a mood, usually brooding); colored pencils (love the way the colors blend); colored pens; and pen-and-ink. The subjects I draw are eclectic, everything from pristine rural scenes to unsettling surrealism.
I’m a staff member of Skyline magazine in New York. My art has been published in magazines such as:
Clark Atlanta University
Fantasy, Folklore & Fairytales
Georgia State Review
In the Spirit of the Buffalo
Poets, Artists & Madmen
The Clay Tablet
The Legions of Light Magazine
Tropical Fish Hobbyist
My art work has also appeared in Seeing Through Symbols, a literary anthology published by Chrysalis Books. I’ve been a contributing artist for Creative Loafing, an Atlanta weekly with a circulation of 300,000; and Shroder Publishing’s three monthlies in Atlanta, with a combined circulation of 28,000. I do art for the Red Cross in Atlanta, Meals On Wheels, and the City of Atlanta. Part of these assignments is to (usually quickly) illustrate a short story or article.
My art has also appeared on several commercial websites such as Wee Ones and Ron’s Marbles & Things. I did computer animation for the Matrix board at the Atlanta Stadium, depicting the Braves and the Falcons.
Please hurry with your response — this mackerel’s killin’ me!
