A Surreal Book of Endangered Species.
The drawings that I have created for this book are contemporary allegories that combine symbolic surreal images with classical references. They become personalized mythology influenced by literature, observation of life, and art. The dramatic imagery are like still pictures, that have a narrative which alludes to its own past and future but it is the viewer that really defines the story with their own experiences and interests. Like most mythology, the narratives are heightened with the emotional complexities of everyday experiences that combine humor, pathos, and introspection of humanity.
