My art came to me in 1970. Why it did…that’s the part I can’t figure out. It just popped up. When I was at Junior 5, an art teacher showed me how to do stars and that was that, but by the time I was 19 and trying to learn to read, I started scribbling and scrabbling. I learned to draw just by doing it.

I do space pictures. At first, I did cities, then I caught on to space ideas. I made space ships. I can also make cars and robots. I make some crazy robots – weird faces and crazy hats. I draw robots that look out-of-this-world and cars that could be on the moon.

I was always into space because we’re living on a planet and we’re in space. I’ll always have my space cities. You can’t get no further out than that.

Art makes my mind bigger because it shows me something I’ve never seen before. I’m not getting it from nowhere else than from my head….and God. This art right here, it’s all about God. He’s giving me all the visions I see. One day I’m gonna make a whole world and it’s gonna be a space ship. We’ll have our own sun.
