About Me

I’m a visual artist, poet, novelist and street medic, living in Philadelphia since 1964. I make art from trash I find on the street, work in acrylic, water color, pen and ink and woodcut prints: my theme — The Disintegration of the Human. 

I sign my art with my birth name, Willard… in memory of my maternal grandfather who died two weeks before I was born, and out of love and respect for my Uncle, Willard Hardin–who was both big brother and mentor.

Jacob Russell is my pen name. To my friends and comrades, I am Goby.
