Progress is the substitute for faith when culture is all we have; and before realizing it we become unaware martyrs of this comfortable religion.

His satirical, macabre works hint at cultural absurdities and its no wonder his insanely rendered graphite illustrations all over the apparel, skate and record industries while he consistently keeps his gallery hand strong. Blood High Five Sterls. Blood High Five.
