· Where is your shop located?
I’m based out of Los Angeles, California USA. I work out of my home studio creating my artwork, doing print production, and packing up orders to ship.
· What inspires your art?
I’ve always been drawn to strange and curious things: monsters, spirits, magic, otherworlds, oddities, the fragility of life, and taboo darknesses we’re told to repress and ignore. I find the mysterious rawness of who people are inside, what they secretly keep locked up away from the world, beautiful and mesmerising. A few artists who have greatly influenced me include Jon Carling, John Kenn Mortensen, Mark Riddick, Naisa Gomez Pluguez, Paulina Cassidy, Sophia Rapata, and Tim Burton..
· What mediums are your favorites to use?
Definitely ink, both pens and washes straight from a bottle, on sketchbook and bristol paper as well as hot pressed watercolor paper. Ink is what you’d call my “first language”. It has always been my habit to pick up a pen and rather mindlessly doodle my daydreams away. There’s something seductive and revealing about laying your soul out on paper, unforgiving mistakes and all. It’s messy and wild and beautiful. I do also really enjoy graphite sketching.

· What is an archival giclée print?
Archival means that the materials used to make the print are of higher end quality and will resist fading, discoloration, and deterioration for the next 100-200+ years. I print all my artwork in my home studio with an Epson inkjet printer using water, smudge, and fade resistant pigment inks on 100% cotton acid-free velvet fine art paper.
· Do you accept custom orders?
Yes, I occasionally do custom illustrations. Keep an eye out for my announcements, or feel free to ask if I’m open for customs at the moment.
· Would you consider doing collaborative/promotional work?
I definitely would consider it. A few things I’d like to work on include: freelance art for promotional purposes (e.g. bands, bars, brands), concept design, illustrating/writing books, song writing, etc.
· There’s a product you designed that I love, but it’s not being sold in your shops. Can I special order it?
You can definitely request to special order an item that’s out of stock, but there’s no guarantees. Some of the work I do is limited edition, and I also have a policy where I do not re-sell customs to anyone but the original buyer.
· What is your pricing?
5×7″ archival matte giclée prints are $15 each, 8×10″ archival matte giclée prints are $20 each, and originals (the actual piece of artwork that I created) are $30-$50. Custom orders are generally double. Pricing for certain pieces, such as custom illustrations and tattoo designs, may vary based on materials used, how detailed the piece is, or if I’m doing a limited edition run. Pricing for other services vary.
· Your pricing is too expensive, will you more affordably price your art and services?
I love and value what I do. If you like what I create, this is what I charge. If you don’t want to pay it, you don’t have to buy it.
· How long will it take to receive my order?
It depends. Parcels are shipped via First Class Mail with a tracking number attached after payment has been received. Every week I pack up all orders on Friday afternoon to be shipped during the weekend. For those in the U.S., it should take 2-9 business days to arrive depending on your location, holidays, & weather conditions. For those outside the U.S., it should take 2-10 weeks for International orders to arrive due to transport, customs, holidays, and weather conditions. If you’ve placed a custom order, the time it ships out depends on when the order was placed and how long it took me to complete it and finalize payment with you.
· What is your return and exchange policy?
I don’t accept returns, exchanges, or refunds; please purchase seriously.
