Here’s Dreamsnatcher - everyone’s favourite anxious little skelecat. Their favourite food is nightmares, followed by egg mcmuffins.
I had an absolute blast playing this screechy little monster! This event was an “alternate universe” one-off wherein we played “guardians” of our main characters. Some folks opted for parents, or for alternate reality versions of their PCs. I played a future version of Lu'Shin with an even MORE tragic backstory (because why the heck not???)
My solo show is coming up soon! “For Your Bones We Wait” opens June 3rd at Arch Enemy Arts gallery in Philly. I’ll be flying out from CA to attend the opening, so if you’re in the Philly area come say hi that night!
For over a century the Gallery of Paleontology and Comparative Anatomy has been fascinating and terrifying visitors with its massive cram of reconstructed animal skeletons. Established in 1898 in an effort to preserve a number of then-scattered scientific collections, the multi-floor galleries of fossils and bones present one of the most wide-ranging and comprehensive presentations of natural artifacts in the world. The museum is divided into two separate galleries, each with a staggering collection. The Gallery of Paleontology is filled with amazingly complete fossils and most impressively, a number of massive dinosaur skeletons arrayed amongst the buildings ornate glass and iron architecture. However the real show piece of the museum is the Gallery of Comparative Anatomy. In this section of the museum, over 1,000 animal skeletons are packed literally wall to wall in the massive gallery. The remains of each beast are faced in the same direction creating the illusion of an undead stampede as visitors enter the space. Horses, elephants, large cats and any number of other creatures are represented in the giant bone collection. 📸: Photo regrammed from the intrepid @mondaymorningturningback

Since this piece includes all of my immediate family members, myself included, I felt it was important to yet again add my artist statement for the show below:
Flesh Blood Bone:
Animals have always been an essential part of storytelling, symbolism, and spirituality. I am continuing this tradition by producing works centered around fauna to tell stories that relate to creation, mortality, the violence of nature, and my personal life.
Flesh Blood Bone is my first attempt to acknowledge, and accept, aspects of my personal history that have caused me anxiety and heartache. As in my previous work, all subjects are depicted as animals. The series of narrative works centers around my immediate family, and the interactions and emotions that occur between the four members. Recently, I felt that I could finally address these feelings on paper. I have illustrated my separation from the issues presented in Flesh Blood Bone by depicting them as otherworldly, divine animals that exist in a habitat removed from reality. The four family members, which includes myself, become abstracted versions of themselves
I plan on continuing to center my work around aspects of my life and past. I am seeking freedom from my anxiety through my artwork.
