About Hoop & Stick
Hoop & Stick is an underemployed fine artist / freelance illustrator and amateur-hack-of-a-writer currently living near Raleigh, North Carolina. He is also a 30 something anarcho-communist who can easily handle the cognitive dissonance required to also adopt a quasi-absurdist, material-reductionist metaphysic. He is a veteran of anywhere between three and five colleges (depending on who's doing the counting), and while it kept him sharp, the victory of obtaining that coveted BA in 2013 somehow seemed less important than it did when he started in 2003. Living alone in a cave atop a craggy peak while growing a magnificent beard, on the other hand, appears to be a goal far more praiseworthy to him. That might very well be his next project if this whole productive-member-of-society thing doesn't pan out. He becomes sulky whenever someone brings up the fact that he will not live long enough to see the Andromeda galaxy merge with the Milky Way. His real name is Brandon Spence. He looks a lot like that guy you knew from back when. He desperately wants to be an astronaut when he grows up.
