HPL48: Whistler on the Willamette

            Sign in to contact ...
Making people laugh and think. And sometimes both at the same time. I'm an accomplished and well-known commercial artist who works in both two and three dimensional traditional media. I also love part-time teaching and writing. I have written three books in the past five years, one of which has been published as an e-book in 2013.

I'm currently creating a gallery exhibit of paintings, drawings and sculptures themed around the works of author H.P. Lovecraft.

Whistler on the Willamette
I'm probably best described as improbable. An artist with a well-developed left brain, I have one foot planted firmly in the better parts of the past, the other in the present with my eyes fixed on that far horizon seeking a better future. I strive for a balance of both style and substance. My mind is an engine that needs to be constantly stoked with fresh ideas, stimulating conversation, music, art and books. Life is a grand adventure and I have a hunger for all varieties of intellectual exploration.

Which is an evasive way of saying that I'm not particularly athletic. (Oh screw it, I hate sports.)

But I digress.

Anyhoo, I'm looking for a long-term relationship with a woman who can join me in this grand adventure. The quickest way to my heart is through my brain. Witty banter is my idea of foreplay. Think of Rosalind Russell and Cary Grant's verbal pyrotechnics in "His Girl Friday" to understand what I'm driving at.


A list of my favorite things would probably exceed the length of the Oxford Unabridged Dictionary. For the sake of brevity (and my reader's sanity) here's a brief synopsis:

BOOKS: Everything from Homer to Homer Simpson (that is, both Matt Groening and Nathaniel West) "Cultural Amnesia" by Clive James; "Life: the Movie" by Neal Gabler; "Stalking the Nightmare" by Harlan Ellison; "The October Country" by Ray Bradbury; "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" by H.P. Lovecraft; "The Collected Essays of George Orwell" by (you guessed it) George Orwell; "Thunder at Twilight" by Frederic Morton; "The Painted Word" by Tom Wolfe; "The Power of Art" by Simon Schama; "American Visions" by Robert Hughes, etc.


A lovely autumn afternoon. A coffee at a sidewalk cafe and much animated discussion. A long walk. A movie, perhaps and a light dinner with a look in your eye that says, "Let's do this again soon!"




MOVIES: "Lawrence of Arabia"; "Doctor Zhivago"; "Religulous"; "The Fog of War"; "The Producers"; "The Big Lebowski"; "Chinatown"; "Pan's Labyrinth"; "Casablanca"; "Ace in the Hole"; "Blade Runner", "King Kong" (1933 version); "North By Northwest"; "Raiders of the Lost Ark"; "Apocalypse Now"; "The Body Snatchers"; "My Family and Other Animals", "Office Space", "Shawn of the Dead", "Annie Hall", "Crimes and Misdemeanors", etc.

MUSIC: I'm a serious classical music and movie soundtrack fan. It's best to list a few of my favorite composers instead of their compositions: Jerry Goldsmith, Bernard Herrmann, Miklos Rozsa, Bela Bartok, Modest Moussorgsky; Aaron Copland, Sergei Prokoffiev, Segei Rachmaninov; Johannes Brahms, Richard Wagner, Franz Schubert, Manuel De Falla, Dimitri Shostakovich, etc.


If I told you that anyone would be able to discover my secret identity.
