Artist's Statement

Using a cast of reoccurring characters—Popular Charlie, Sometimes Girlfriend, Zuke, Zuggmoy, and Sonasty—I create chaotic drawings with elliptical narratives that are at once lucid and surprising. I use the narrative of failure, ambiguity, and discomposure to explore the obscure terrain between our internal desires and the external world. In pursuing this adventure over the years, I've forged my own mythology—and while many of the components of this mythology are autobiographical and self-referential, others are culled from a wide variety of external sources, including Ovid's Metamorphoses, Winsor McCay's Little Nemo in Slumberland comic strip, The Kalevala, Saramago's Baltasar and Blimunda, the Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game, and Japanese kaiju films
