About

For the past year or so I’ve spent most of my “after hours” outside of work time making art. The art I make isn’t the traditional painting or drawing (I’m terrible at both), but rather art made in collaboration with computers. I feel weird calling it that because people usually think that means I play with fractals, which are cool but not really my thing. Instead I use machines and computers as a part of my art practice—its an ends to a means, not the end. This collaboration with computers allows my work to take on many final output forms: prints, drawings, cut collages, 3d prints—the list is long and I want it to get longer.

Here are a few images of the types of things I produce:

Imagery influenced by science


Unique Valentines drawn on a pen plotter

One other thing about my work: I try to make it and sell it as cheap as possible. The use of machines and other computer-aided 

At the beginning of this year I decided to do something a little radical: all of the money I make by selling work in my store (minus shipping) gets donated to an awesome organization. We need all the help we can get in the US right now and this felt like a great way to give back. I’ve raised ~$750 dollars since January for some great orgs.

But I’d still like to cover some of my material and art expenses, and that’s where you come in. Backing me on Patreon will be my way going forward to make a small income on my work. In return I’m offering original works to my Patrons. In a lot of cases you will get experimental things I’m trying to figure out or play with. In other cases you will get early access to works I’ve “solved.”
Goals
$99 of $100 per month
This goal is pretty simple—I’d like to cover my monthly material expenses in addition to having a store set up. New paper, new inks, books that get cut up into collages, new cutting mats, stuff like that. This will allow me to make art without taking a loss and still give the sales from my store to great organizations.
