I like making art. I commute on the train with an active doodle pad. I scribble through meetings. I save everything. They are all puzzle pieces that form bigger stories. I am first and foremost a storyteller.

Dans fantasy is to play harmonica in a reggae band.
THE EYECANDY UNIVERSE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE a shameless plea for money...
Making a living as an artist is a tough gig. Artists', like this one, would much rather be making art than hustling dollars. For us, it is almost embarrassing to ask for money. To overcome this dilemma, I decided to make a shopping experience that is entertaining. Now I feel like I"m giving you something of value, so you will feel happily compelled to give me something of value in return. Preferrably in US denominations.
Please feel free to write and help me get better at this money thing...
