I've always been good at drawing. People have told me so for my whole life. I've always carried a sketchbook with me everywhere I go and I love to show it off to anyone who is interested in seeing it. Still, I've always struggled to take the next step with my work.
Otto Mann was a huge influence on me. "Smells like Otto's jacket" and "My shoes are talkin'" are some of the earliest drug references that I remember getting. That's when I learned a lesson that still ring true today: drugs are cool.
