I purchased a domain for a webcomic now that my artist website is up and running. I have been crazy busy, constantly working and trying to make art and keep in touch with all my friend folk. Also my brother's cat just moved in for a visit while he's trying to sell his house, so I had to get her and my cat getting along.
But I have been working on some art! I'm still working on my big painting, and I have been doing some fun things with beeswax. More to come!
In the meantime, I thought it would be nice to share some of my older artwork. This was part of my independent work in fourth year. It is a plaster cast of lighters, which I have painted Gucci, Adidas, Apple, the Olympic rings, a Jesus fish, Rock band 2, Martha Stewart and Barbie on. The idea behind this was the juxtaposition of symbols, the lighter as a symbol of smoking and drug use against symbols that would not typically be related to those things. Doing so my intent was to cause the viewer to question the meaning of these symbols and how they actually relate in society, and what they are supposed to represent. Perhaps questioning their assumptions.
