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. and I'm 41.
I'm a creative writer and artist and have shown my work in galleries in Los Angeles. Check out my art here.
I'm also a contributing editor for the popular art blog Daily Dujour.
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!

Last night my dog was barking at another dog. I din t’ know she was barking till my brother told me. She was doing it at the middle of the night! This morning, when I was putting toasts into the toaster, my dog got one of them! Its’ a good thing we got it before she had a chance to eat it.
