    Hello, everyone! I’m Chris, I trained as a sculptor but as middle age encroaches I beat myself up for not pursuing, say, technical writing? My influences are terse and Gothic, I suppose, and as many times as I’ve attempted to drive a story from alpha to omega I fizzle out.

    I love the medium, I love the potential it holds, I love how a well-told story… makes me feel… and I yearn to contribute someday to the tapestry. I guess I cut my teeth on Jack Kirby, but in maturity I always return to ‘Kingdom Come,’ and ‘Saga of the Swamp Thing’ and ‘Planetary’–

    I want to do the work. I want to put words in Superman’s mouth… someday… (yes I trained as an artist, even while I specialized in printmaking and bronze sculpture I did the required 3+ years of drawing courses, but also to me, for me, photography renders representational art less impactful?)

    So, right, “curveball, man trained in classical art wishes to learn scripting from ground up.” I’m excited to wade into a pool of like-minded creatives and see what results!

    I can be reached at idreaminbronze@yahoo.com, should the need arise. Cheers!
