This piece was inspired after a visit to New York (Manhattan to be specific). The city is something which fascinates and scares me...The sheer number of people...the sensation of being alone within a crowd...the commerce, the saddened faces in subway stations all influenced this piece, which represents the lone figure within a spiraling city landscape. He cries a single tear while seemingly waiting for the smoke from his own cigarette to eat him up as he waits in line, briefcase in his hand.

Inspired by so many different places I must list them:  The arm: Requiem for a Dream The Skating Figure: Watership Down The Foreground/background: Salvador Dali The Disconnected Steps: Madness & Modernism The Slice of Earth: Restraunt at the end of the universe The sensation of movement: Pantera The atmosphere: LSD  What it means is totally up to you.

This peice is a direct representation of a poem/song by Jim Morrison which greatly touched me. I drew it as I listened to the song on repeat for 20 cycles. It represents a singular male figure (me?) sitting upon a pill. There is a great fear of some danger (represented by the claws infront) and yet there is strange beauty and peace (represented by the figure of a woman looming from above). Her hair flows down like waves upon the beach; her figure is soft and inviting. The tension of being within such a state of beauty and danger is the all-mighty theme here...very often beauty is overpowering to the point of being dangerous...very often danger is disguised in a beautiful form...

 This is the end...my only friend, the end...
