I did this 22x15 Coquille and colored pencil drawing for an up coming art show in February at Jason Goldberg of olde city tattoo's gallery. "Death will never end" is actually a line off one of my daughter Olive's tattoo flash drawings that I asked if I could borrow. The "Atomic Rubix" was also my oldest daughter June's idea. She reminded me one day that there are over forty thousand ways to configure a Rubix cube, and only a few ways to solve one.I felt this illustrated the precariousness of life, or at least the paranoia felt by some in this new age of Post super power America when placed inside a radio active blast cloud.I wanted to kind of document this melancholy on a black and white, easily to read platform....Something that was more obvious in its message. Plus I really just LOVE working on coquille!
From time to time I Like to add my daughters ideas into my art. I feel that as an artist, a persons children can provide a unique perspective on life.One that is in many cases, over looked by adults. I am lucky that my two girls just so happen to profoundly creative and blessed with rich imaginations that I can tap into!
