Wordplague: "When I graduated art school back in 2000, I had a couple of options in front of me. The first involved pursing an MFA in painting, leading to a promising full time career as a professor or gallery artist and illustrator. The second involved going on a seven year bender highlighted by an ocean of booze and Pink Floydian levels of psychedelic drugs. I went with door number 2. The path to Hell is paved with free coke and stripper sex.
It was around 2007 when I finally got motivated again and began to regret my long hiatus from the art world. So I started painting again, and for the first time since high school I tried my hand at writing.
I had two separate ideas to begin with. The first idea was for a gritty supernatural horror story about a modern day version of Hell. The second idea was for a humorous semi non-fiction account of my surreal drunken exploits over the years. So instead of doing both projects individually, I did something that was as epic as it was lazy: I combined them, and Jack’s Inferno was born.
