How would you describe your work? 
Grape flavored popsicle dipped in the ocean and placed on a rock to melt.
So you only work digital? Why? 
It has less restrictions and I can put it in the world instantaneously.

How did you get your start in the art world?
I used to cold email companies like crazy and eventually some started to take notice. I got a couple small jobs which led to bigger jobs. While I was waiting for anyone to respond to me I would constantly make new work to keep myself experimenting.

What is a piece that you have done that you are really proud of? 
I love all of my work equally.
I read that you’re a surfer as well, does this translate into your art? If yes, how? 
Absolutely. I think the spontaneity of surfing has allowed me to work more instinctively. One of the hardest things to do is start a piece but I think surfing helps that.

Tell us about a typical day in your life –
Wake up and feed the baby, dog, and myself. Then I will check the surf and respond to emails. If the waves are good I will go surf. I will eat again and work on any projects that I have or make personal work. The rest of the day will be sprinkled with tending to the dog and baby and responding to emails.

What are you inspired by?
Any type of art or music that evokes strong emotions.

I read somewhere that you always listen to music while working. What’s on your playlist right now?
Electric Wizard, Windhand, and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

Working on any new books? What can we expect to see from you in the future? 
I have a couple awesome clothing collaborations coming up as well as putting together my 10th part of my 440 page book series.
