Hey everybody! I’m Joe Carlson, aka Cloverman to some. I am, first and foremost, an artist. I was born with a gift for composition and creation, and I apply that gift everywhere from drawing, and painting, to stained-glass, and sculpture. I have always been a hobby filmmaker, ever since I made my first hand-drawn cartoon at the age of 6, using the pause and record functions on a VHS home-camcorder and paper cut-outs. I decided to go Into Directing, because it is a wide medium, wherein I may apply all of my talents, or at the very least, direct such departments to produce such effects to my satisfaction. I love using my artistic side when I can. I often draw, paint, and sculpt, having sold many projects. My work is spread out from Hawaii to New Hampshire, with some sketches that may still be floating around in Germany. My most well-known projects, lately, have been my clover-paintings.
I have an uncanny ability to find 4-leaf clovers. I can find so many so quickly that it violates every 4-leaf clover statistic I have ever heard, and I use those clovers in my artwork, preserving them into patterns under varnish. As far as I know, I am the only artist in the world who does this. My production logo for “8-Leafer Studios” features the silhouette of my 8-leaf clover. Under this Flag, I hope to take my Narrative, Artistic, and Musical endeavors to the big screen, Directing and guiding such departments and scenes as I would compress different planes of a chaotic wad of clay into a colorful and uncreased sphere, strong and well-rounded enough to roll steadily on its own.
