My foundation is Bob Rauschenberg; Joseph Campbell my cornerstone and Al Oerter my strength. The three pillars of my M.O. are - Agathe Eris, Kizan and Improv.

Bob Rauschenberg: (Artist) Did so much for me; but to focus, I put forth his R.O.C.I. projects. He traveled to the political and geographic off-limits to bring his art and co-make it with the local masters. These events of generosity opened up those cultures to the world in both directions. I posit his 1st gift to the art world is his generosity. The art work on the wall a bi-product. I call this principle Passion As Export.

Joseph Campbell: (Philosophy) I have used his outline of universal hero journey to familiarize myself with myself. I have finally learned to agree with the game of life; to embrace the requirements of Hero Contract. To be initiated in tribe; to be tested and failed; to try again and never look back. To pierce the veil; learn thy Trickster's name and return with a BOON.

Al Oerter: (USA Olympian - Discus) Even though he won 4 consecutive gold medals, the powers-that-be told him again and again and again and again he wasn't gonna make the team. "Underdogs like us just got go for it. No matter what they tell ya. You gotta go for it!" Heroes are strong of mind and body.

Agathe Eris: (Greek) is the healthy side of strife. It is the energy that miraculously appears when you need to get back up after getting knocked down. One has 2 simple choices- die or re-niche. Think about Rocky Balboa... you just got punched in the head 100 times. Why would you possibly stand back up??? Because Agathe Eris says "get up Rock!" and suddenly you have that energy needed to keep going. You stand up; and the theme song starts playing!!!

Kizan: (Japan) is a Buddhist principle that what ever it is that one does--- one does it better every time it is attempted.

Improv: (Comedy) don't step on someone else's joke. Roll with whatever role-play the world builder deals out. Make the joke funnier by agreeing.

Well Hung Art professional art handler

Well Hung Art

Vyd has been a professional Art handler for more than 100 local, national and international artists. Responsibilities include: interface with artist, design/hang Museum & Gallery shows, business & private home owners, production/archive, preparation/repair, inventory, packing/unpacking and transporting collections.

Meeting and working for heroes like: Bob Rauschenberg, Christo & Jeanne Claude, Merce Cunningham, Al Oerter and Clyde Butcher has been phenomenal. Thru the loading dock of a museum; inside the vault of a collector; opening the private door to a studio; no velvet ropes- I have learned as much from the back of a thousand paintings as I have from the front of 10K.

"But he's not." - Bob R.

Professor

Edison College - 3 semesters-Drawing 1, 2; Foundations 2D. week-long professional seminar on Web Design
Florida State University - Adobe Illustrator teaching assistant
Community classes; Independent students; Pre-School

I have always liked education; and even more so, I love the free exchange of ideas. While guiding a class is very satisfying, I must admit: my greatest feeling of achievement is convincing people that 'their dream to be an artist too' is completely possible. Not with just a glut of information but with a swelling of worth & possibility.

To be part of a staff that puts the fusion of all the Arts first, would be a utopian fantasy made real.

My professional experience with the Adobe Creative Suite includes: -) Teaching Assistant- Illustrator at Florida State University.- ) Art Director- web design consultant and sales at E-Troop.com, as well as various independent sites, using Dreamweaver and Fireworks. -) Large-scale digital reproduction of antique photography using Photoshop. -) Editing video with Premiere and After Effects for DVD or the web.

As a graphic designer my experience was fostered in t-shirt design. My branding and logo skills have been successful for local businesses because they are layered with meaning and developed with a variety of production methods in mind. My basic directive is- form facilitates function. My goal as a design teacher is to make students polyglots of symbols.

As I have mentioned; I am completely indebted to so many that have supported me so much throughout my life. The hero's path is clear before me; I must transform into that roll for others.

Amazing Keryx fortune teller
Art Royale #6 - 2008

The Amazing Keryx

What started as a performance art installation in the celebration of shape has become a reoccurring fortune teller at festivals and fund raisers.

The Amazing Keryx knows your now! With the five universal shapes I can decipher your subconscious. The public has an innate understanding of visual semantics, even if they can't express it. This is the foundation of The Amazing Keryx fortune telling street performances. The culmination of each reading is an individualized: drop that nonsense in favor of: go for it … what are you waiting for!

Part of its success is the ancient and universal definition of shapes that carries on thru today. The other half is a pact between strangers that they are not alone. I am told my hit rate is astronomical and the tip jar tells no lies.
