John Collins is an artist and handyman living in Los Angeles with his poet wife, Ingrid. John and Ingrid tuck into their nightly sanctuary with the ever so romantic hope that they will create lasting contributions to society. During the baseball season, John paints a nightly baseball comic called Moonlight Graham, which are ink paintings documenting a top play from that day’s action. His practice outside of the nightly baseball comic consists of painting and drawing traditional subject matter with traditional media on non-traditional art surfaces he has salvaged from handyman jobs (plywood, wallpaper, drywall, concrete or stucco scraps). John’s stark, stoic and exceedingly fatalistic philosophy guides an art practice rooted in constantly questioning social norms. Why are you participating?'In some countries it is required by law to vote. In some countries Election Day is a National Holiday so no one has to try to vote around their work schedule. In this country, it has become more and more difficult to vote, and voting is the most important and most essential part of a democracy. Voting should be simple. I support any effort to bring the power balance back in favor of the people.'
