Because I'm 14 going on 45, I decided to get myself a Tumblr page. I mainly just put a lot of general 1960s weirdness on it that interests me.
Thanks in large part to a mention in this forum for my museum website last year, (wherein I was complimentarily referred to as the “real life version of Howard Moon of the Mighty Boosch”), and based in large part on some of the critical comments from members, quoted here: (“I still prefer a simple scroll site”; “Great content. An absolute shit-storm of a user-hostile, frustrating, vanity interface. Maybe the worst I have ever seen. But great content buried under there”; “Pics too small”, etc.). The site is now non-flash and reborn. [more inside]

I've always been fascinated by objects that have journeyed through time and the scars, patinas and even energies they appear to have acquired. At first I started collecting them, and then, as I would notice certain juxtapositions, I started combining them into assemblage artworks. I recently got my first art show of these artworks, and I'm proud to show them off here! (and now you can see where my nickname, extrabox comes from!)

My Father & Grandfather passed away last year. I inherited a few cigar boxes of old magic ads, books, and tricks from the early 1900's. Every day I scan a new page, book, trick, etc. and try and try to learn a little about it.
