A lot has happened in the month and a half since my last life update post, and especially in the last two weeks! Let's get right in to it.Read More
In late 2016, when the shock of the election was still fresh, I tried to start drafting a blog post entitled "Art and All of This”. I thought a lot about what I would want to say, to unpack the relationship between my life and my art, and how I couldn’t avoid the ways the goings-on of the world were going to affect my artwork. There’s an oft-expressed idea that art and entertainment shouldn’t get political. That it exists to entertain and provide a positive escape.
I assume this comes from people who have a choice as to whether they are affected by politics or not— many people do not get that choice.

It's been a long time in the works, but my Patreon is finally LIVE!
Your support of my work will make a difference in the body of paintings I'm able to produce going forward, now more than ever.
