Illustrations by Jacob Myrick
The things I make live somewhere in the borderlands between the narrative and the conceptual, snapshots of a surreal universe sprung into existence from an op-ed. I'm inspired a lot by diorama and how they catapult the viewer into a position of non-interactive observer from outside a created universe. I think my work seeks to capture that feeling - wondering who these characters are and why they are doing the things they are doing. Understanding their emotional truth even though they are somewhat alien.
