2009  (left) World of Motion

One of the earliest drawings in the series. What better place to start with than the Surrealists. An homage to Magritte, Salvador Dali, Yves Tanguy and Jean Cocteau. This generation of mind expansion on canvas and film, and the written word; filled with visual and romantic notions that drew me in like a moth to a flame.
