These are selections from my art-journals from 1988 -1989 when I was 18 years old.

I was a romantic weird guy, trying to figure out my life by working out my stuff in drawings and words.

30 years later I decided to publish this embarrassing work as a peak into my headspace as a young man.

I think of this as a type of time-machine that can fuse my past and present into something new.

This is a hardcover zine (11 X 8.5 inches) with 80 sides and 40 pages.

Crackling raw truth, smashing-heart angry art, and a glimpse into the vulnerable soul of a boy craving love of a girl, a family, his art and the world. Made me cry. Loved it.
