Voted Best Local Artist in the Des Moines Cityview- Three years in a row! 2011, 2012 & 2013!
This self-proclaimed “mad scientist” of art has taken this title for the third consecutive year. We all have a darker side, a slight affinity for the sick and demented, and this guy gets that. His sci-fi/horror drawings, paintings and other works can be found on display throughout town, and readers recognize it when they see it, because he pulls in the votes year after year.
