This book is a catalog of Cody Lusby's art series called "Goodbye Butterfly" produced in 2013

Concept: Something has been brewing in me for years. I felt it deep in my being as a youth. People told me to change it. Rename it. Excitement….. but I knew the truth. There is no running away. I have to let go. Goodbye butterfly.
I fight you anxiet
The focus of this series is about the release of anxiety. I chose anxiety for its complexity and it seems every one (including myself) deal with it in one shape or form. Letting go of that anxiety is a magnificent and truly freeing feeling. To illustrate this release I have created images of people exhaling butterflies. The moment of release. The figures in each painting are blurred, giving an almost etherial/ anguished look. Anxiety takes the traditional form of butterflies. Each butterfly is a hand cut collage image of what is causing the anxiety. I feel if I create enough of these pieces maybe I too will be free of the butterflies.

About the Author

Cody Lusby
mustachicorn Long Beach, CA, USA

Stamping his iconic mustache across the land, Cody Lusby has evolved from his classically trained roots into Mustachio - a brush-wielding renegade who takes risks, fears nothing, and rides with no saddle. Some say Mustachio is Cody's alter ego. In fact, the stark contrast between the artist's humble, soft-spoken nature and his in-your-face work is hard to miss. Mustachio's art is defined by talent, technique and a mélange of mixed media (think borrowed road signs), resulting in vibrant, controlled chaos.
