Trippy drawing of sculls merging together

"My work is an attempt to convey with earnestness and compassion the trials and tribulations of the common creature. The slithery forms and toddler skull empires I construct are a way in which I can test the depths of my own imagined depravity against an appetizing backdrop of edible leitmotifs. Disturbing incidents of real-world violence, intentional and otherwise, are filtered through a fruit salad lens in order to bring forth uplifting and lighthearted narratives of triumph and disaster. Bit by bit, I aim to construct a visual universe as vast and dynamic as the intangible, imagined counterpart from which each idea is plucked. It is very much an open ended project." --Ben Duncan
