People always ask, "What sort of crafts do you do?" and I never know quite what to say. I produce quite a variety of products, and I try to use recycled items whenever I can, using items I find in thrift stores as my inspiration...
I also have a love for all things 80s, so while I'm cruising thrift stores for craft stuff, I also pick up 80s toys, games and books!

"i’m an artist and, as such, subject to much distraction and whimsy. i’m completely self-taught, inspired by pin-up models, tattoo art, mythology and urban fantasy. i started drawing very early in life, like many tender lumplings (nod to danny elfman) do. i would copy my favorite cartoon characters and attempt to capture the magic i felt when i watched them or read them in comics. i was born on Hallowe’en, just after midnight, on a full moon. it totally explains both my demeanor, personality, and a myriad number of other traits.
my artist’ alisas, c d poe, finds its roots during early high school days and my fascination with edgar allan poe. the full name is christopher daemon poe but it is always shortened and written in lower case letters as “c d poe”. i was a prolific writer of poetry in high school, and while i don’t write as much now, still do to this day. i have designed tattoos for friends and family, and would love to learn that beautiful and intriguing skill some day. for now, i settle for sketching and drawing what niggles at this twisted brain, and committing those images to pen or screen.
runesigmajor inspirations for my art include both brom and his lovely wife laurie lee, tim bradstreet, gil elvgren, milo manara, luis royo, boris vallejo, vargas, olivia, and alphonse mucha. i love drawing from suicide girls, the alternative model directory on Fb, and other contemporary pin-up sources. i like neil gaiman, clive barker, and j.r.r. folkien for literature. i like danny elfman, glenn danzig, and trent reznor for music.
i primarily use pencil and paper to lay down an image. i used to use copic sketch markers and pens for inking/coloring, but most of my inking and color work is now done in photoshop cs5. i find this a very versatile way to work and saves quite a bit on consumables (pens, markers, etc). i have a great deal of respect for those who do all by hand, but as a computer geek, i am hooked on the digital methods.
i’m a horror movie fanatic, which i blame on the fact of when i was born. my tastes in music vary greatly, but i’ve always been tempted by a driving beat, dark undertones, and deliciously wicked lyrics. gothic industrial and electronic music are standards in my playlists."

"My origins are not supernatural, nor have they been enhanced by radioactive spiders. I am simply a Native American artist and writer whose creative mantra in best summed up with a word from my tribe's own language as: "taʔčaʔx̣ʷéʔtəŋ", which means "get into trouble".
A member of the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe, I was raised and spent a majority of my life on our reservation known locally as Little Boston, which is located near Kingston, Washington. Although I am enrolled there, I am also both of Suquamish and Duwamish tribal ancestry.
I am a honor graduate from the Art Institute of Seattle, and I have had the privilege to study with Tsimshian master carver David Boxley for a short time learning the basics of Salish form-line design. For the past 10 years I have been employed as Lead Designer/Studio Manager for a media agency that specializes in Non-Profits.
This site, the work that is seen on it is a reflection of a lifetime love affair with comic books, toys, TV and film. Taking my passions and blending them with my Native perspective, artistic background and the desire to simply be me. Basically I am just trying to have fun and get back to that kid that went to art school to begin with, wanting to create artwork that I want to see and make just for the hell of it."
