Welcome to

Artistic Outlaw

Where I experiment, create, and practice my life’s journey as an:

  1. Burnt orange background with a triangular explosion just behind a yellow-ish highly stylized skull, surrounded by thick lettering spelling Art and Law on either side of the skull.
  2. More Detail orange, the word rage with many A's fades from bottom to top in bright red, a yellow hand is flipping the bird, wrist aflame.
  3. a green field of color with the word sorrow stylized and set in purple to the left of a sad man, with flowing and chaotic red hair, a single tear streaming down his face. a cloud looms above. no menace is felt, only sorrow.
  4. Repeating self-portrait illustration of the artist, James Mathias. Each instance identical, drawn in a deep navy blue on a field of white. An older white man with full beard, and a backwards baseball cap.

Process is a performance that results in artifacts, and outcomes. The actual process matters little. The steps are mostly irrelevant.


When I was laying in the hospital two years ago my goal was concise: “don't die, get home.” It was a good goal. Not easy to achieve, but not impossible either.


So far so good, I still haven’t been tarnished with the 4th sight, so perhaps my days will be more or less unblemished by the woes and wails of the souls trapped betwixt this and their dimensions.


Twenty-one years ago I spent three weeks trying to decide on a domain name for my first website. I considered so many choices, the vast majority of which were unavailable.

I’m a complex dude. The Outlaw section will hopefully lift the veil on the mysterious and rarely consistent me.

I have a lot of interests, the Sundry section collects and catalogs all the things I love doing, watching, reading, and playing.

My partner Lucy and me discuss whatever is on our minds, dip into reviews and opinions, tough subjects, and generally work on ourselves.
