The Oddball's Story

The Oddball began as a simple abstract symbol that I began drawing over and over because something about it captured me: a circle with two lines through it. It felt simple but mysterious, and I was determined to attribute some meaning to it.

Years later, the Oddball, as it stands, has become a symbol that distills the essence of myself and my art; the circle representing the cycles of life, which I explore frequently in my art, and the abrupt lines running through it representing the unexpected and a break from the norm.

(With a dot for a little bit of zhuzh.)

The Oddball philosophy is to embrace yourself, explore new things, and make mistakes.
