Today I told one of my student’s I had no time to paint this week. Then I spent three hours tonight doing this self-portrait, from my August bike ride.

Q: How did you get into drawing? Your ballpoint is magnificent.

The non-answer is I’ve always drawn. However, after a couple of more practical careers that didn’t work out (infantry, web designer), all that was left was artist.
The ballpoint stuff is for fun, the ink drawings and oil paintings are the professional work.

Thanks for the props!

Q: Strong work bro...you have mad skills with the art! Keep up the fire! P.S. Kabul still sucks as does most of AFG.

Thanks dude!

Yesterday I was talking to a friend who’s working in The Ukraine. He told me he much prefers the open booze and chatty Ukrainian women to the hollow-eyed Jihadists of his time in Afstan.
