What you will find here:
Cut paper illustrations, altered books, and ‘eh’tertainment. (Games that are fine. I guess.)
Project: Withdrawn – altered book art/board game mash-up.
Project: RedtroRanch Games – leaders in ‘eh’-tertainment. Games that are OK. I guess.
The Times I get It Just Right
The Part Where I Talk About Myself
I am a Salem, MA based artist whose work is focused around creating a spark of amusement to anyone looking at his pieces. He has been creating altered book-board game sculptures since 2018 and fanciful creatures of marker and tissue paper for years before that. No matter the chosen medium, the end result is to present a concept that has been taken seriously and looked at it through a whimsical lens.
The Three Main Projects
Exploring minimalism with lines and color using the animal kingdom, both real and imagined. They have involved representing a recognizable creature with just one or two lines and combining that with a limited color palette to accentuate certain areas.
The mundane or limited appeal board games. This is a challenge to showcase something unexpected and surprise people with getting entertainment out of something that would normally be considered tedious. And doing this against the backdrop of a made-up game company called Redtro Ranch Games.
An ongoing series called Withdrawn. Here I am trying to find connections between hardcover books that have been abandoned by either the previous owners or removed from a library’s collection and a board game that compliments them in some meaningful way, to me, and hopefully you.
Sometimes I Hang My Stuff On Walls
None. Have space on your walls? Maybe I can put stuff on it. Stuff I’ve created, specifically.

I Guess Its A Good Idea To Offer A Way To Get In Touch
You can e-mail me. I tried using a contact form – but there are so many people that find ways to send you junk, that they’ve ruined it for me.
