about D.J.

Hi, it’s just DJ.

I live in Los Angeles, California. I write stuff, make art, and I am self-employed. I do not own a yacht. I do have a wife and children. They do not own yachts. We have a dog named Quincy that I say is named after Quincy Jones and my wife says is named after that Jack Klugman show. We agree to disagree, but he mostly comes when we call him so it doesn’t really matter.

Like I said, I’m a writer-type person, which means I drink coffee and bourbon and I swear a lot for no good reason.

I am a vegan. It just gets weirder from here. This is your only warning.

You can see some of my art here: http://graphicsbydj.com

I also own a custom screen printing business: http://sparkyfirepants.com

And… I have a little community resource for Work-at-Home Geeks like me.

I have lived all over the United States and Europe and have decided that the best place to see the Eiffel Tower is in Paris, France.

I do a lot of different stuff to make a living and all of it is 100% legal, I think.

I’ve been a professional illustrator and animator for over twenty years. My clients have included MTV Networks, Highlights Magazine, Sesame Workshop, Nickelodeon and others. If you’re a millennial or the parent of one, you’ve seen my work on that show with the blue dog and the manchild in the striped shirt.

Oh, right, I almost forgot – I also invented, designed and published a super cool card game called Pants! If you haven’t played it before, there’s still a little time before you die. Pants!

My wife and I both became vegetarian in 1993 and our whole family has been vegan since 2001. I’m a USAF veteran. Those two things are not related. Neither is this: I can solve the Rubik’s Cube in under four minutes.

I often wonder if I smell like outside. I don’t like to smell like outside, unless it’s the beach or the mountains. So if I ask, I’m more concerned that I smell like freeway outside.

If you feel like you know enough about me, you can stop reading now. I mean, this is the end anyway.
