Current Quotes:

If life gives you llamas, make llamanade. -Dave Appleby

The dumber people think you are, the more surprised they're going to be when you kill them. -William Clayton

People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that's bullshit. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they're afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us up. People try to hide their pain. But they're wrong. Pain is something to carry, like a radio. You feel your strength in the experience of pain. It's all in how you carry it. That's what matters. Pain is a feeling. Your feelings are a part of you. Your own reality. If you feel ashamed of them, and hide them, you're letting society destroy your reality. You should stand up for your right to feel your pain. -Jim Morrison

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night. -Edgar Allen Poe

Hello viewer of this topic, I'm Cary Koffler. Since I started this group I feel obliged to add some depth in my introduction, but I'd like any and all members to introduce themselves with as little as an acronym or as much as... well lets see.
On the eighth day of May, 1959, in Los Angeles, CA. Mom created Cary Koffler. As far as I can remember, I loved anything that was "Horror", by age four I was writing and illustrating my own horror stories. From ten to thirteen years old I lived in Pisa, Italy, where I became inspired by the great Italian renaissance artists; such as Michelangelo, and Da Vinci. While overseas I traveled throughout most of Europe, visiting sites most only read about in history books! I moved back to Southern California just in time to enter high school, where chronic use of hallucinogens skyrocketed me to higher levels of consciousness likewise creativity. From 1977 to 1981 I attended UCLA as a fine arts major, broadening my artistic medium to include photography, sculpture, and performance art. After graduating UCLA, I went on to graduate studies at Otis Art Institute in LA; working as a freelance illustrator, occasionally exhibiting my fine arts work at local galleries.

I paint what's inside of my head; the visions, ideas, concepts, dreamscapes, and hallucinations that perpetually bombard my brain nonstop, reveal themselves to me; birthing themselves to become the artwork that I do. I usually have about six to eight projects going on simultaneously, which keeps me constantly on the move and each project fresh when I return to it. I definitely would not be the person I am, doing the artwork that I do, had I not been inspired by such great artists as Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Hieronymus Bosch, Gustav Dore, Salvador Dali, MC Escher, Pablo Picasso, and H.R. Gieger.

Unfortunately a lot of the work I'd like to include in this group, I am not able to due to dA's submission policy, apparently my art is too devious for them. I've already had works removed and been banned twice (the second ban lasting 3 years) I'm pretty disappointed that dA has considered some of my art (and it is art indeed) in violation to policy whilst welcoming a plethora of poorly drawn anime/manga with content even I find objectionable (and I never saw the day I'd find anyone's art objectionable). But who am I to judge what's acceptable or not when it comes to art? No one. So art on world, art on.
