flotsam… jetsam… fuczm…
the sh*t in my head
WTF is fuczm?
A window into creativity
fuczm, “the inception of creativity,” is a word and an idea that has played in my head for nearly 20 years. As an artist who draws, paints, writes, produces, directs, and edits film and all that goes with that, ideas never stop, and yet I’ve had to wonder many times what would happen if they did? Who would I be? Where do the ideas come from? And how could I get them back if one morning I woke up and they failed me?
A scary thought… would I still be me?
These pages are meant to be a window not only to my work, but into the process of creative thought itself. I hope you find some entertainment and maybe even some inspiration.
Artists create their own worlds — make them great!

WTF will you find on these fuczm pages?
Honestly, who knows? These blog posts, or “fuczms,” sometimes no more than incomplete thoughts or the rantings of an artist (aka a creative madman), are meant to keep me on track, let me make sense of my journey, and are shared with all to both entertain and to let other artists, of every possible medium, know they are not alone in the fumbling toward meaning and relevance – even if just between ourselves.
