"Painter of Zombies and the Disturbed. Or Disturbed Zombie Painter… I forget which. These figures are contradictions, beautiful and grotesque at the same time. They float through their worlds driven by craving, vanity, and addiction, caught in moments of stiff poses and comedic indulgence. They put themselves on display for the world as their bodies and minds slowly decay. This is how I see myself and most everyone around me. We are the Dead Living, but we sure do look good."
