Description This tribal warrior was done back in high school in 1987. Ink on paper. Although the warrior looks quite angry and scary the idea for this piece came from a very innocent place. I was watching the rerun of Gilligan's Island that had the tribal warriors on it. They were of course stereotypical cheap hollywood costumes on actors, but it got me thinking about the real tribesman of the forests and jungles through out time. Where true survival depended on man's base instincts. This was the piece that had the art schools offering me scholarships during portfolio day.

Where ever I end up in life I always seem to fall back on my creative side to get by..... and I always get by! Art comes from my soul as I usually have no idea what I'm drawing until it flows out of my hand as scribbles and scratches.
