“I’ve been doing pics for about 2 years. I’m self-taught. All my life i’ve worked in restaurants and couldn’t keep a job for more than a year. The boredom killed me. 2 years ago i wanted to learn graphic design. i was very curious about photoshop and my teacher was busy teaching the old freehand. I wanted to alter pictures and i didn’t know anything about photography. My teacher told me “”what you want to do is shit, you will never do money from this. There’s no way somebody sane will care for this crap.””

I made my first pic called scream (the oldest one on flickr). My teacher laughed, but i started to upload the pics on flickr. People surprisingly started to comment, and i started to express my self and to explore ps and my limits as an artist.

I have a friend, a great guy that i have never met in real life. He was the first one to really believe in me, and it’s been like that since then. I get support, but only on the internet.”
