I guess you could say this is a composite of what me or one of my friends would look like if we were a mermaid. I think it looks kind of Nordic.
Another old print. This was about how I thought cats were creepy at the time. I thought that they would be a lot like snakes if they had no appendages and I really didn’t appreciate it. I also felt like when they looked at me they could look into my soul or see my thoughts. Of course I didn’t really think that to be true, but I didn’t like that look in their eyes.
Another college print. I was getting Graves disease at the time and no one could tell me what I was getting yet. Nervewracking. I couldn’t sleep but had to nap during the day, I felt so weak I was exhausted just from standing up to make the print. So the print became about that. The ladder signifies not being able to get to where you used to be. Your prized labrador is no longer alive, yet still playfully wearing a rain slicker hat, out of your reach for comfort. Your legs are tired and not capable of the athletic capacity they used to be capable of. And you wish you could escape it all.
This is another print from college. I will put a lot of my old college ones on here before putting more recent ones because I don’t have as many recent ones. Anywho, this was of a girl who is sending wind-up ducks out into the water and they then turn around and come back to her. I guess it represents a simple calmness & joy.
this is khakiman – a man obsessed with khaki. he feels whoozy having to face the array of colors confronting him in the real world and prefers “neutrals.” I guess you could say this is sort of my revenge on the fact that colors in home decor, fashion etc. are often of a dull bland neutral palette and it doesn’t give life the full zest it deserves.
I made this print in college. It was the last assignment I ever had – we had to make a book. Well my book revolved around a hotel that had dinosaurs that haunted it and shat all over the place. This was part of the “allure” of the hotel. It drew curious parties. So there were all kinds of scenes involving dinosaur excrement appearing in the strangest of locales.
