other interests    •    I'm more than illustration, here are some of my other passions.
Music - Ah music, one of the greatest loves in my life! My musical tastes vary, however, what I love the most falls into, Punk, Dark Moody Rock, non-contemporary Soul/Blues/R&B, Classic Rock and Metal. Those that know me well know that if I had to choose just one band to listen to for the rest of my life it would be the Ramones.

Comic Art/Robots - Second to my enthusiasm for music is my love of all things comic book or robotic. I am especially fascinated with oddities and esoteric retro-futuristism. Some of my favorite comic art/robotic subgenres are Steampunk (Victorian steam powered Sci-Fi) and 1930s-50s Retro Sci-Fi (like the type found in 1930s Pulp Fiction or 1950s Sci-Fi movies).

Computers/Gadgets - Last but FAR from least, is my zeal for tech. I love computers, gadgets and almost everything geek. The spark was ignited long ago when my brothers and I got our first computer, a Commodore 64.

My brother John and I spent many an evening long into the wee hours of the night in the glow of our Zenith TV taking turns reading pages and pages of code to one another from Compute's Gazette as the other would slowly type it in. And for what? An animated bouncing ball, an animated umbrella, or a simple animated video game. Now, all these years later, I still love the glow of the monitor.

I wish you all happiness and success in finding and living your passions.

Ciao,
Joseph
