I'm an artist, designer, comic author/illustrator, animator, and a semi-retired DJ and promoter (deathrock, steampunk, horror punk, gothic, etherial, psychobilly, and experimental).

I've assembled shows and events featuring Voltaire, Bella Morte, 45 Grave, the Brides, Black Cat Revival, and many others, and events such as the 2006 Gothic Prom at the Madison, as well as several occurrences of the Cincy Dark Arts Festival, and have been silently on board for countless other events - lending input and my graphic design and marketing skills toward bringing good bands to wherever I am living.

My paintings are owned by people such as Captain Robert from Abney Park, Voltaire, and many equally wonderful and fantastic, though not quite as famous people.

My days are spent working, or with my wonderfully talented girlfriend Beth, usually both. Our works are often recorded here at Etta Diem's LJ: Etta Diem, or at the Miskatonic Archive - and sold here on Etsy, here at the Miskatonic Archive, or here on my site.
