Starving artistBorn and raised in Englewood. I’m a professional artist — I do handpainted pieces, giant, small. Anything somebody comes up with, I can do. I’ve done a lot of murals for businesses on South Broadway: the Paradox Lounge, the Englewood Tavern — that just opened.I did a mural for Gecko Vapes recently, too. I’ve got a few paintings up at Angelo’s CDs & More.Most of my work comes from paintings, building props and doing makeup for movies and productions. My cousin Jesse works with me. He owns the Englewood Tavern now.We get commissions to build weapons or props. I’ve had a few gallery showings.I’m still trying to make a rooted-to-the ground living. I don’t know any artist in Denver who’s not still living the starving artist lifestyle.I’m on Instagram as Moltar13 and Facebook as Moltar.Gomez.Humorous horrorI’ve been with my wife for seven years now. She’s just as into the weird and creepy and macabre as I am, so once I found someone like that, I figured I had to marry her.We’ve got our 5-year-old son Sterling. He loves horror movies, because he’s around to see what the makeup process is like from start to finish. He sees a box full of supplies and, a week or two later, he sees a finished product.Most people don’t like to hear this, but he’s seen the “Child’s Play” movies. He thinks they’re the funniest thing ever. He loves Jason, Freddy Krueger, all the cheesy `90s horror movies. Every October we dress up our old car as a hearse, and stick a skeleton in there, just to creep people out.If I can creep out at least one person per day, my day is complete.
