As a creative and independent child, he forged ahead into adulthood with reckless abandoned, making his way to the southernmost point of the nation, where he became Captain Squid. The Captain created a speakeasy off the shores of Key West called the Tentacle Room. This speakeasy became a sociological art project that traveled with him from studio to studio, from Key West to DC to LA… creating an artistic society of like-minded mischief-makers. His mentors and influential friends along the way helped to define and shape his approach, beautifully relayed in this full memoir. It is an endearing account of one artist’s will to survive in a dog-eat-dog world while fighting his own demons, not giving in to compromise.
