Hi, I'm Joe. I am 23 years old. There is not much to me other than that I enjoy anime, cartoons, art, movies, trading card games; like Magic: The Gathering, and drawing. I am also very timid and shy.
My artisic backrgorund is mainly a little bit of everything. I am an acrylic, watercolor, & oil painter, a ceramic sculptor, a graphic designer, an illustrator trained in the digital and traditional arts, an avid crosshatcher, I did a little Flash game developing, some Flash animation, etc.
My art style used to be based in cartooning and anime, but through the years I have developed a taste for realism in illustration and abstract/surrealism/expressionism taste in painting. I work in various styles and most times they combine and blend with one another.
With my art I try to find a common ground to meet my audiences and through my experiences I have learned is that people and myself love doing comedic crossovers. My friends get a good laugh outta them. What matters most is the feeling I get when my art makes people smile and laugh.
Also I am an extremely passive person in most viewpoints and a firm believer of $#17 happens. Few things earn my ire.
I am a Dudeist. If you don't know what a Dudeist is I'll explain; Dudeism is: "Inspired by the attitude of such famous Dudes as Jeffrey "The Dude" Lebowski, Jeff Spicoli, Lao Tzu, Epicurus, Julia Child, Heraclitus, Kurt Vonnegut and Snoopy, Dudeism is a real religion that implores us all to "just take it easy, man." What could be more spiritual and uplifting than takin 'er easy? The Dude Abides, and so should all of us. At the Church of the Latter-Day Dude."en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dudeism
