Carl A.K.A "SUNNY D"
Born and raised in the Ypsilanti area, Carl started drawing as soon as he could pick up a crayon.
Carl achieved an Associates Degree in Commercial Illustration from Washtenaw Community College
and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Eastern Michigan University.  Carl continued to pursue art as a career
while working in the restaurant business as a server, bar tender, chef, and manager for 18 years.
While working and going to school, Carl started his own freelance art company, CDorrGraphix.
Through his company, Carl did a variety of jobs in the art field including graphic design, logos, murals,
portraits and flash websites.

-- I've painted everything from mailboxes to ceiling tiles."

After meeting Jeff Foust from Liquid Swordz, Carl realized his true calling. By combining his artistic talent,
a tattoo machine, his nouveau style and vivid imagination, Carl is now in his element. This is Carl's
fourth year with Liquid Swordz and he is soaking up the tattoo world like a sponge.
Carl is always eager to learn new styles and be challenged by his clients.
"I never thought I would love my job as much as I do now, and in the process I get to meet new people.
I'm the definition of the American Dream."
