He hoped to one day be an illustrator in western books and magazines by authors like Zane Grey and Bret Harte. There, he used his artistic interest to create sketches of his activities in the South Pacific. While serving in New Guinea, he saw natives creating decorative designs in leather and became curious about exploring the art. He and a few friends used pocket knives to carve the leather and created rudimentary tools out of nails shaped into various forms. He moved to Laguna Canyon where he settled in a shack that he made from an abandoned chicken coop.
