Description

There is a lot of dark humor in my art. It’s the thing that gives lightness to the sometimes odd content. Making typography work within the pieces had its obstacles. The challenge was to find different ways of creating type and shapes, from the obvious, to the more obscure. At the same time I tried to keep the work absurd with a sprinkle of whimsy.
