Hello and welcome to my site. I’m an Artist who has worked as a Graphic Designer, Photographer, Illustrator and more. With over 15 years experience in a fluid industry I can take your concept from sketch to final production. If you’ve a venture coming up and do not yet need my work as a designer or photographer I’m sure I can be of service as a Creative Consultant. Please feel free to browse my work and if you like contact me and let’s see what we can create.
Around the age of 36 or so I finally bit the bullet and got my first tattoo. Yes It was a bit late in life to do so but what can I say I wanted to make sure I wanted one. I decided that when it came to getting a tattoo whether it was the first or the last it would have to be something I drew myself. Here I am 10 years later and have begun work on tattoo # 5, Quetzalcoatl! Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent of the Aztecs.
The god Quetzalcoatl, is the Feathered Serpent or Precious Twin. He is the godintelligence and self-reflection, a patron of priests. Quetzalcoatl is a primordial god ofcreation, a giver of life.
The Myans called Quetzalcoatl Kukulcan: Kukulcan, meaning “the feathered serpent,” was the Mayan’s supreme god. He was the god of the four elements, as well as a creator and the god of resurrection and reincarnation. … Kukulkan (“Plumed Serpent”, “Feathered Serpent”) is one of the many gods in the pantheon of Maya mythology.
I began the drawing for this tattoo about 430 pm on a Wednesday and worked until 12 midnight and worked on it again Saturday around 2am. So far I am loving both the drawing and the tattoo, the outline was done the day after the drawing was started. Luke Thrasher of Thrasher Inq in Nashville, TN is doing the tattoo. If you’re in town and looking for an amazing tattoo artist, I recommend contacting him. By the way he is Nashville’s only Private Custom Tattoo studio. You can look him up at https://www.facebook.com/Thrasherinqarts/ I’ll be posting updates on the drawing and the tattoo as they come along.
Today was a sad day indeed. George A. Romero passed away. I can say with quite a bit of happiness that I passed many an hour watching Romero’s movies starting with the black and white Night of the Living Dead which scared the crap out of me at the age of 10. His Zombie movies made the genre possible, we’d not have The Walking Dead without his pioneering vision. If your not familiar with Romero’s many movies here is a link to the Master’s filmography https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_A._Romero_filmography
A previous location is revisited. Previously I’d explored this house with my buddy Justin and I’d been wanting to go back. So this Fourth of July fellow photographer Jay Farrell and I did just that. Unlike my previous visit I noticed a rather unwelcoming sign of concrete and earth piled up to make the parking a bit less accessible, rude. But oh well small cars win the day.
The side door from outside, notice the skeleton key lock! Vintage!
From the inside that door isn’t quite as inviting.
I think perhaps the piano was played a little too hard at some point, what’s on the boob tube? A little down the hall I come across an appropriate holiday card, don’t you think?
and a little farther up the hall….
If I thought the side door looked menacing I was left praying no one would come through the front.
Feeling a pressure to my bladder I sought out the bathroom, but decided to hold it and well no taking a bath here either.
Let’s head upstairs…
Well yes, it was rough looking on the 1st floor.
Looking as creepy as the other front door. Even the graffiti is scared senseless.
To the left, the Box room.
To the right a gateway to Hell.
Hmmmm, structural problems?
Perhaps we’ll go back down?
Let’s go out back n see what’s there!
No going this way…
Okay it took a bit of hiking through a mini jungle but Jay and myself finally found the back porch. Not easy to say the least.
The porch needs some DIY Love. Pretty sure that fuse boxes are not supposed to be used for nesting.
I guess this is the door to the bathroom. I imagine whomever knocked the door down they really had to go, butt in the END were denied do to a blockage!
There are more pics, but this is enough for now. I hope you enjoyed this revisit of a previous exploration.
When I was 9 I went to the movies with my cousins and watched Alien by Ridley Scott and loved it. Over the years I’ve seen all the movies in the Alien Franchise including Prometheus and the recent Alien Covenant. With the exception of Alien 3 I thought them all to be amazing. Last night I decided to do a small homage to Alien, I call it Alien Contagion. Enjoy.

Old Woodbury Road held quite a few memories for me. My family would travel to Woodbury, TN every couple of weeks to see my Grandparents on my Dad’s side. It seemed like a long trip and one that to me went on forever. About two decades ago The State of Tennessee put in a new four lane highway from my town Murfreesboro to Woodbury and what was once a long ordeal became a pretty speedy one. Every once in a while I like to take a trip down Old Woodbury Road. There was a roadside restaurant called Pope Taylors, a BBQ place that from what my Dad told me was a bit of a trouble spot but made the best BBQ you ever wish you had. I hope you enjoy the photos.
