THINGS I LIKE: my friends; my family; everyone who's supported me on DA; 80s and 90s nostalgia entertainment; sportcoats; TV actresses; stylish hooded jackets; large T-shirts; Xanax; money (Who doesn't?); many types of music; people who can agree to disagree.

my name is john. i've been drawing and playing video games since i was a kid. i have autism, which should tell you a little about me. just like some of you, i tend to get a little emotional and neurotic. a lot of things can in fact be overwhelming for me.
i don't really believe in first impressions because most of the people i meet start off one way and turn out differently once you really get to know them. the majority of the people i encounter are liars and backstabbers, while others seem strange at first glance but turn out to be decent.
i also have a lot of shallow, unrealistic dreams that i continue to chase after. (if you've got any of your own, don't stop chasing them. you have my support.) my dreams include: making music, designing video games and meeting as many celebrities as i can.
i need to also add that i like to push the envelope at times and shock and titillate viewers with my artwork - as do many filmmakers, authors, musicians and video game designers - so don't even dare label me as atrocious or corrupt just because i make artwork of that kind even though i'm not yet affiliated with the industry.
if you have any sense, you will notice that A) here in AMERICA we have the commonly overlooked FIRST AMENDMENT and B) even i have my own standards when it comes to the artwork i create, so i'm just human like any other artist. my goal is not to offend you, but really just to raise a few eyebrows and make a few jaws drop.
a piece of paper and a pen alone never harmed anyone.
