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, Chiddy Bang, going to the gym, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cricket Magazine, gloves with the fingers torn off, the "Gemini's Twin" sketch on Saturday Night Live, Parks and Recreation, illustration, rugby players, Trina Schart Hyman, Stephen King, horror films, Hillary Clinton, film history and unexplained phenomena.

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

CURRENTLY READING : The Troop by Nick Cutter


The highlight of my Easter morning was a woman tripping out on meth in a shopping center parking lot in Marina del Rey, weaving back and forth, clutching her hair and slapping herself. I called 911 and the cops came 25 minutes later. :\

We are deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Jon Imber, a highly accomplished artist and an alumnus of the School of Visual Arts. Jon graduated from the MFA program in 1977, and was a protege of Philip Guston during his time at BU. While his struggle with ALS has ended, the profound impact of his work will live on.
