Introduction The blackbird is the artist's signature; blackbirds represent the liminal realm between Waking Life and the Land of Motionless Childhood, which is near Pinchbeck. The artwork is a heterogeneous mixture of differing influences, currently including philosophy, comic book art, A-ha, dolls, Baudrillard, Borges, and God. The rest of my art work is on my website, where there are links to purchase my work via Redbubble.

Favorite Books "Making Waves" signed personally by David Hasselhoff himself!! "Labyrinths" Jorge Luis Borges, "Neverwhere" Neil Gaiman, "The Time Traveler's Wife" Audrey Niffenegger, The Bible. I also read a lot of heavy art theory of Baudrillard and Foucault etc, that's why I often have a puzzled look on my face.
