I am a world changer

The characters here stand on the precipice of change, wondering how to proceed. They can go left, they can go right. This series has a political edge, but I guess I don’t have to explain that, in a world where everything is a choice between left and right.

The characters really are you and I. Or you or I. We are not unified, even in our love. We may love family, but vehemently disagree with where we’re coming from. I didn’t make that up. 

When I was a child I fell in love with a hamster, and a fish. Both died prematurely. Perhaps my art is expressing a deep desire to bring them back to life, to have just one more day of friendship and fun. Pictures can, and should, be eternal. Like tar on a road, the paint dries enough to allow us to safely pass over it. 

But unlike roads where potholes eventually form, the surface of a well-primed canvas stays the same forever.
