Name: Ben Goetting
Location: Costa Mesa,CA
Hobbies: Phazer Blast Design and Fanzine, web page design, screen printing, and rock and roll.
General Stuff: I've lived in Costa Mesa for the last year.. before that I lived in Newport Beach.. I was born up north in Hieldsburg CA and lived in Utah untill I was five. My main interests have always been art and music. I have been playing bass for a few years (well some people call it playing). I have always had a passion for art and design. I've been working on different self-published fanzines for the last 4 years and I love to take pictures and design flyers for bands. I am starting school at Orange Coast College this year, and am hoping to eventually move on to another college and major in graphic design. Right now I am building a portfolio and eagerly looking for work. As far as graphic design goes my biggest influence is Art Chantry. My other influecnes are mainly punk designers/artists/and photographers.
My Quirks: I am anal about random shit, like my records in order, my clothes in order, and the menus at work folded the right way. My manager at work found this out, so it's her mission to fold all the menus the wrong way when i'm not looking. She's mean. but.. it's cool.
