I'm hard at work finishing up my next graphic novel The Wolf... I've been "hard at work finishing" this book for over a year now, but it will actually be completely done in a few weeks.
So, for no real reason I'm gonna post a bunch of art that I did way back in 1996-97.
I made these the year before I went to SFAI for my MFA. I was very inspired by artists like Robert Rauschenberg and Cy Twombley and free-jazz and noise music like Boredoms, John Zorn and John Coltrane. I loved using found objects, collage from old books, and exploring memories and dreams and abstract story-telling.
I feel like that period of time was when I was the most "free" as an artist. A time when I was full of ideas and possibilities and enough pre-art-school naivete to think that I could make art out of anything.
I still look back to these pieces for inspiration - they act like a time-machine to my younger self.
