New Beginnings in Indie Publishing, Art, and More

I am a fulltime artist, writer, audio professional, and social media user. I recently began working more full time on projects related to gallery work, indie publishing, and sound design. Now it seems all of these things are starting to merge together. This space will reflect all that…stay tuned. Especially on the indie publishing front.

Specifically with regard to graphic novels, sequential storytelling, zines, self publishing and all related things. I started a very long journey in these areas back in 1987 with a crude, hand-printed xeroxed zine (more of an elaborate flyer, really) called Putrid Doom. It was terrible, and was read by maybe five people. But it got me started on a journey in indie publishing that took me places I never dreamed.

I stopped publishing in the late 90s, briefly returned in the 2000s, and thought I had “grown out of all that”. But as it happens, I didn’t grow out of self publishing, just out of my formerly more ranty, self-indulgent, and if I’m totally honest really egotistical writing style. I also found my own voice rather than aping the non-fiction style of Stephen King, Hunter S. Thompson with shades of Kurt Vonnegut thrown in for good measure.

Today I write, create art, and compose music that deal with dark themes of urban lonliness, alienation, industrial decay, sexual situations and more.
