At the age of one and a half Tom Cocotos rolled off his diaper table;25 years later a delayed neurological reaction caused him to abandon an electrical engineering degree to pursue one in art.  He’s inspired by rides on the NY subway system, dolphins that resemble Jimmy Durante, and eccentric people. His passions include volleyball, poetry, interesting scraps of paper and studying the lives of famous magicians.  See more of Tom’s work on his website and Altpick page.
