I create artwork inspired by historic failure. Fueled by humanity’s urgent, often ill-fated desire to reach beyond itself, I strive to expose, honor and commiserate in a history riddled with mistakes and uncertainty. Recently I’ve taken special interest in the bumbling capitalists of America’s Gilded age. I’ve been reading Howard Zinn and looking at Thomas Nast cartoons. My drawings encapsulate the sordid history of the Great American Wealth Gap.
