J Wonkie's Profile

About

Hey there person,

Welcome to my etsy profile page!
My name is J.W. Martin aka J Wonkie. I'm from the Midwest, residing not too far from a widely celebrated covered bridge that is located some 200 yards from a cantankerous farmer who once misplaced his favorite spade, and on a very unreasonable speculation accused a tourist from New Jersey of stealing it. The tourist’s sister, a master gardener from Vermont, maintains (to this day) a state-owned field of beautiful Red Clover, which of course are susceptible to nematodes, and nematodes are the primary subject matter of chapter 178 of her husband Gary’s self-published book ironically titled “The Benefit of Parasites”. Gary’s interest in self-publishing was ignited by a conversation that he had with a passenger sitting next to him on a flight from Burlington to Chicago. The passenger talked non-stop to alleviate…

Hey there person,

My name is J.W. Martin aka J Wonkie. I'm from the Midwest, residing not too far from a widely celebrated covered bridge that is located some 200 yards from a cantankerous farmer who once misplaced his favorite spade, and on a very unreasonable speculation accused a tourist from New Jersey of stealing it. The tourist’s sister, a master gardener from Vermont, maintains (to this day) a state-owned field of beautiful Red Clover, which of course are susceptible to nematodes, and nematodes are the primary subject matter of chapter 178 of her husband Gary’s self-published book ironically titled “The Benefit of Parasites”. Gary’s interest in self-publishing was ignited by a conversation that he had with a passenger sitting next to him on a flight from Burlington to Chicago. The passenger talked non-stop to alleviate her fears of flying due to witnessing a helicopter crop-dusting accident when she was 9 years old in Madison County Indiana. The pilot survived but his dog, Lord Buckley, went missing shortly afterwards and was found lapping up spilled lemonade in the back alley of the local jeweler’s establishment by a freckle-faced young boy who was commonly referred to as “Dean”. Now “Dean” was the twin brother of a recluse savant that specialized in comic book facts, but in no way was actually blood related. They were only step brothers but indeed shared the same birth date and ironically the same first name; “Bertran”. Bertran, the one who actually went by that name, was best friends with a cat named Meyer, who was and still is the Mayor of a little village in South America that exists only in the dream state of J.W. Martin.

My influences include the following: Mid-Century Modern, Minimalism, 80's & 90's Skateboard Graphics, Pop Culture Kitsch, and of course The Gospel.

I'm a father, husband, dreamer, entrepreneur, and artist.

True Statement # 572 and attempt to legitimacy:
"I was the proud proprietor of a skateshop (skateboards) in the 90's but most importantly the 80's!"

Thank you for visiting, and I hope you enjoy your stay.

Blessings,
