I'm a screen printer, designer, handyman, husband, father, drummer, ukulele player, record collector.
What was your first job? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
My first job was scooping ice cream for baseball tourists next to Doubleday Field. I never thought of myself as an artist, but I've always been into lettering. My high school notebooks were full of band logos, real and imaginary.
Who was your favorite comic book/movie/cartoon character as a kid?
Encyclopedia Brown. I wanted to be called Dictionary Palmer for a time.
What was your "break through" moment you knew you made it as a designer/illustrator?
When I got my first daily print on shirt.woot.com. I had been struggling along for a year with no success, but after that things started to fall into place.
If you were not an artist, what would you be?
A font designer or a sign painter.
What song would best describe your art?
Strawberry Letter 23 by Shuggie Otis, because I love lettering and soul music.
What's the strangest thing you've drawn?
A veiny, warty, one-eyed hot dog with lizard legs tearing through the bun, entitled "When Good Dogs Go Bad".
Right now I’m obsessed with…...
I'm obsessed with Victorian and turn-of-the-century architecture, because I'm renovating an 1890's house. I love terms like ogee, astragal, chamfer, rabbet, muntin, and parting stop. Just call me ORabbet!
Really terrible movie that is your secret guilty pleasure?
It's a web series, not a film, but I'll go with Yacht Rock. I even went to a live Yacht Rock party once.
What super power would you have?
The ability to manipulate time, and I would have to keep it from people, or else be asked to do favors all the time and inevitably break the space/time continuum.
You and one other person on a deserted island, who is it?
Bear Grylls, because I want to survive!
Wars or Trek?
Neither. The Star Hustler, Jack Horkheimer.
