the work

The source materials for my collage-drawings are things like comic books, instruction manuals, product advertisements, and children’s activity books. I typically draw or paint on them a bit, too. Past artist statements would tell you that these are “scenes of comical catastrophe” wherein “amalgamations of people, animals, and ordinarily-inanimate objects become characters in a ridiculous improvised narrative, plagued by miscommunication and cartoon violence, and frozen in moments when their stories teeter on the brink of cohesion or collapse.” But I would never say any of that out loud. (Artist statements. Ugh.)
