Fort Guerin

Fort Guerin, raised in Mesa, Arizona, struggled in his attempts at writing stories until he tied them to his quirky images of nostalgic characters. The writing, which takes the shape of rambling narrative, forms the background for his paintings and tells stories of the characters that people his work. Guerin gets inspiration for his paintings from imagery found in vintage magazines and books that he finds in a little store that near his home in suburban Washington, DC.
