tbh there are literally only like three people in the world who i can hang out with for more than four or five hours without wanting to strangle them
I don’t understand the logic that whoever is calmest in an argument is winning and that somehow anger invalidates your words. I mean I can argue that your great aunt’s name is Jihinksenbob for an hour straight and be perfectly fine. It’s very easy to be calm when the topic doesn’t affect you personally or you just don’t know what the hell you’re talking about.
“I was a bouncer and a bartender for 44 years, and I only ever had five fights.”
“What was your secret?”
“I never tried to intimidate anybody. Most bouncers think they are gangsters. I treat everybody with respect, and I demand the same thing.”

Currently I live and work in Oakland, California with my wife Evah and our cat Jalapeño. Once in a while I take on illustration commissions, but most of the time I paint and sculpt for exhibitions. I think it’s important to constantly challenge oneself with new ideas and new mediums. My interpretations of the world are mostly rooted in science then executed through painting and sculpting. These are the best ways for me to communicate, but I always enjoy making other things as well.
