I am also massively inspired by movies, particularly horror and sci-fi like the Hellraiser series, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Exorcist, Evil Dead series, Night of the Living Dead, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas etc.
I love things that are dark & disturbing (to most humans) and I love spending time with my wonderful wife Shannon, drawing, playing PS2 games, and playing with our cats- Axl and Lillith.
