-11×14 inches,
-Giclée print on heavy weight archival German etching paper
-limited edition of 13 signed and numbered

About the image:
On the one hand, I wanted to explore the broad concept of cognitive dissonance—something that I think is a steady theme through much of my personal work. At the same time, I was toying with an idea that I discovered in a poem, in which the author speaks of having a devil on his back, but a pocket full of flowers. This line resonated with me and I quickly jotted down the sketch that would become this image. I couldn’t help but think of the similarities between this concept and the dark side of the classic nursery rhyme Ring Around The Rosie. I believe contrasting good and evil in this way has a nice balance between light humor and dark intentions.The Aesop fable, “The Fox and the Grapes,” is often referenced when describing the cognitive dissonance theory—something I wanted to tip my hat to with the fox pelt slung around the gentleman’s neck

DUKE NUKEM FOR WIRED

Title pretty much sums it up. I got a really fun call a few months back asking if I could illustrate Duke Nukem. I am not a video game player what so ever, but, like most other adolescent boys, I did dable in the first person shooter worlds back when things like Doom and Duke Nukem first came out for those old  PCs in the 90′s.  It wasn’t a big part of my daily life by any means, but Duke does bring back a few memories of childhood in Myrtle Beach, SC.  It made illustrating this picture all the more enjoyable.
