"While I am quite passionate about photography, I consider it passive activism. My true creative expression comes from illustration. I began drawing at the age of four, finding inspiration in daytime cartoons and commercial advertisements. Today, I continue to practice with pen and ink, spotlighting visionary surrealism and psychedelia. My illustrations have been displayed in contemporary galleries, sold at music festivals, and tattooed on strangers.
My current collection of works (mixed throughout my illustration portfolio) aims at visually representing my stream of consciousness. I begin by subconsciously putting pen to paper until I see an element that can begin to take form as a certain animal. Once an animal is in mind, I exercise convergent thinking processes in seeking out a man-made appliance that goes hand-in-hand with the species. Convergent thinking, a large aspect of creativity, is thought to be greatly affected by the unconscious.The term is defined as the ability to construct associations between dissimilar ideas. By means of unconscious autonomic processing, the human brain manages to simultaneously generate an ample amount of mental representations and establishes associations between unrelated concepts. I try to create art where the elements of my drawings have a train of continuity and a sense of movement from one idea to the next. Details of the works are pieced together in a meaningful fashion that is novel and unprecedented."
