I spent my free time (sometimes) drawing, often reading, and writing as much as I can make myself. I love Robert Heinlein, Will and Ariel Durant, and Medieval literature. Weird, I know. My current reading list includes Philippe Pinel's treatise "On Insanity", chapter 10 of the "Bhagavada Purana", and Plato's dialogue "Statesman."

Current Residence: Southeastern Michigan
Favourite genre of music: Metal, specifically Avant Garde and Death Metal; classical music (Rachmaninoff, Berlioz, Holst)
Favourite photographer: meh
Favourite style of art: Better question: what do my drawings say my favorite style is?
Operating System: Windows 7
MP3 player of choice: Galaxy S3
Shell of choice: As in shell casing? lol.
Wallpaper of choice: Variety of astral images from the Hubble Telescope
Skin of choice: na
Favourite cartoon character: Bugs Bunny, hands down
Personal Quote: "The love we have in our youth is superficial compared to the love that an old man has for his old wife."--Will Durant

Any time. I'm a huge fan of Charlton Heston and your portrait captured his rugged individualism with a skill and grace I don't see too often in modern artists.


Well done.

The picture is stellar, however I haven't watched enough of Newman's films to make a real judgment concerning his abilities as an actor.

No problem. I like pictures that express a lot of emotion, yet don't seem to at first glance. Those are the ones you spend your time thinking and pondering about; those are the ones, to me at least, that are the highest form of art.
