Who is Joseph Arpke?

I take my art seriously, but not too seriously. I know I’m not the funniest person in the world, I know I’m not the best songwriter either, and I know there are much better photographers than myself. The worst thing I ever heard an artist say about his “work,” was that he thought all of his pieces were “masterpieces.” Really? If that’s how you are going to act and present your work- 1. I don’t want to associate with you, because you’re totally full of yourself and 2. Why don’t you just quit? If they’re all masterpieces I guess you’ve reached your limit.

I don’t believe an artist’s work is ever completed. In this site you will find works of mine as a comedian, musician, and photographer. I’m constantly striving to become a better at my trades, and I’m the one who sets the standards.  I’m not in it for the money, awards, fame or women. I hardly even come close to any of those. I pursue these hobbies because I enjoy the freedom that comes along with them. On stage, I can present myself however I want to be, and behind the camera I can decide what moments shall be frozen in time. I hope you enjoy the site and if you feel intrigued- please follow, leave comments, share, etc.!
