Like Many Locals Impink was raised in a large family on the coastal bluffs of Half Moon Bay. He often attended school from kindergarten through high school, and even on to a little college, as he grew up and lived a typical day-to-day life. His youth was ordinary with school, family, vacations, playdoh, pets, picking peas for Louie, skating down Isabella, rummaging after hours for bicycle parts at the Poplar Beach Landfill, and endless time spent riding mini bikes, dirt bikes, unicycles and go karts.
Impink Recounts Memories of climbing the flattop trees, surfing a little and getting worked at Ross’, swinging on ropes at the quarry and many years of scouting, judo, delivering newspapers and alter boy service. He doesn’t seem to mind that he wasted countless hours running circles around a track, and hanging out with friends, having BB-gun wars at Hatch’s, bonfires at lower point, partying on the hill and weekend cruising mustangs on the El Camino.
Besides All This, Impink was especially interested in drawing, drawing and drawing… anything and everything art! Perhaps his most influential experiences during those early formative years was being introduced to various artists, painters and musicians and being exposed to their work, approach, and craft. Ever since he educated himself wherever possible from formal school, mentors, collaborating with other artists, practice and first hand professional experience. Now days we have YouTube with endless instructional videos and inspiring creativity.
