"I wanted these to be like graffiti where I'm the only one that's drawing it, instead of sharing the wall. Or maybe a graphic novel, but with every frame happening at once.
Also, I like foam core because you can dig into it and get your whole arm involved the way you can't with paper. You can also return to the pieces later and overwrite parts to add to the storm. In fact, if you look carefully at some of these you can see two different year dates."

The fish is a really cool animal. It's so alien but such a proto-life form at the same time. Jung also says are the symbol of the unconscious.
Ok yeah, whatever. I love drawing fish I live in Gloucester, the name of my studio is Fish City Studios, of course I'm going to draw fish. Sue me!
I like the idea that what Batman does is takes the negative energy of his fear of bats and transforms it into something different... something good? There's something resonant about dealing with your fears head on, confronting your inner demons and rising above it
...plus I just think Batman is cool! I like the car, great super villains.
Have you ever been out on a sailboat past the horizon? It's not hard - maybe 12 miles and then it's just you and the ocean, and the silence of the creaking waves and straining ropes.
Then I think about not only how ancient but how renewable it all is, using the wind to go from Gloucester to London. That's all what I like to tap into when I draw my sailboats: just infinite permutations of an infinite resource.
Ever since I was a kid I've been enamored with the New York City skyline. You see it a lot in these drawings, echoes of the Chrysler building and the streamlined art deco of the city.
Also I like the idea of symmetry, but almost fighting against it, fighting against it drawing these man-made structures that have nothing to do with nature. The hubris! It's can be repetitive, with the windows, but I like how all you need to do is draw a 7 and your brain fills in the rest.
