Scoocher is a nickname my family used to call me. I’m told because I scooched around in my crib as a baby. It may also be how I said both of my names mashed together.
In October 2021 I decided to go with this name as a new start to my art journey. I tried many styles of art over the years. I did surf art for surf companies, punk flyers, record and book covers for punk bands, cartoon art and inkings for entertainment companies and amusement parks. I even showed at many galleries in Southern California even having a few big successful solo shows of my own.
I was always trying to fit my art into counterculture groups in hope of some sense of belonging. I tried to be a surfer but mostly boogie boarded. I was never great at skateboarding but I did skate for transportation around the Southern California beach town I grew up in. I tried to start bands but mostly I only ever played guitar for fun and to de-stress. All of this has finally got me to the place everyone always told me to get to. To just be me.
Who am I? Well, I’m a loving guy who loves hugs. I love a good cup of coffee with no cream no sugar and real strong. I love my wife who is retired from teaching. We have a little dog who is a mix of Jack Russell, Chihuahua and Pomeranian. He’s a bundle of joy and energy. I love American Cheese and Pop Tarts but try not to have them unless it’s a real special occasion. I like to go to flea markets with my family to hunt for treasure which to me means Vinyl Records, Vintage Toys, Old Guitars and Art/Comic Books. I’m also tall and large and I battle depression. The healthier I get the better I feel. I do my best with every day I’m given.
I took many art classes at many schools and a few colleges. I won a high school art contest and went to Pasadena Art Center College of Design for a summer class. I went back later in life to sharpen my painting skills which was a very big help. (Never miss an educational opportunity people.)
I have an online shop (popkustomshoppestore.com) which is now online after closing down my physical location that was in a craft market in town. I hope to have a new physical location soon. Your kind support is greatly appreciated.
You can reach out to me by email (email@example.com) if you would like a custom painting or art project done by me. I’d love to work with you.
You can see many examples of my art here on this website. There are progress videos here and on my YouTube page and a portfolio page on this site as well.
Drop me a line anytime. I’d love to hear from you. God Bless You and Happy Trails,
