Hi! My name's Chris. I've lived in Los Angeles since 1995, when I came out here for grad school. I 'm originally from the north side of Columbus, OH.

I'm a creative writer and artist and have shown my work in galleries in Los Angeles. Check out my art here.

I've also written a graphic novel! You can check out some sample pages here.

I like graphic novels, Christmas, tide pools, grilled cheese sandwiches, reading, biker moustaches, dudes, football (Ohio State and the New Orleans Saints), sea monsters, painting, pine trees, bookstores, tennis, going to the gym, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cricket Magazine, gloves with the fingers torn off, illustration, rugby players, Trina Schart Hyman, Stephen King, horror films, Hillary Clinton, film history and unexplained phenomena.

I blog about illustration, painting, Atari, films, Christmas, books...and things from my favorite era: the late 1970s/early 80s. As well as assorted other stuff!

Today is Carter’s 90th birthday (October 1, 1924). He is the second-oldest living former President, a few months younger than George H.W. Bush (June 12, 1924).

Movies for Halloween #1: Slashers (2001)
Directed by Maurice Devereaux
New series I’ll be doing this month, spotlighting some lesser-known (and some classic) horror films from my collection.
Slashers is a fictional reality show in which contestants have to survive the night in a huge warehouse. They’re pursued by three slashers who try to kill them — for real. This interesting postmodern effort features awful acting (except for Neil Napier, who’s incredible) but is so unusual that you can’t stop watching. Plenty of good story twists, too!
(Note: violent video)
