Bremen

the-hesitation-waltz:

I almost fell out of my chair while listening to today’s episode of Welcome To Night Vale when I heard the opening notes of “Bremen”. PigPen Theatre Co. are a bunch of really cool, super talented guys who very graciously let me create the artwork for their debut album and “Father Hare”, an original Christmas carol.

Go see their show, “The Old Man and the Moon”, they are in New York and Boston this fall. Follow them on Facebook, they post a lot of great videos, sometimes they tour and do concerts hither and yon. And buy their albums. You’ll be glad you did.

Listen to: Bremen by PigPen Theatre Co.

Sometimes I get to draw and paint things for amazing people. (Reposting from my personal tumblr.)

Mask, 5.25” x 9.25”
This black fox creature has turned into an ever-present theme in my recent pieces. It follows me and demands to be noticed, to be included. They feel ominous, but they do not fall in any one spot of the spectrum of good and evil. They first appeared in my work as I was trying to process some events that had been troubling me for a long time, and are meant to reflect some part of my subconscious though I am not entirely sure which part.

The other day I got really excited that Halloween is two months away… which is still kind of a long time. But this is the time of year I listen to Oingo Boingo as much as possible and remember how fantastic Danny Elfman is.

"We live inside a dream…"
8.5”x11”, mixed media illustration, inspired by Punchdrunk’s production of The Drowned Man, 2013 - 2014.
…
Back in June, while I was in London, I participated in one of the sessions for visual artists in Temple Studios. I cannot begin to say how grateful I am to have had that opportunity. The layers and textures, the atmosphere, the vastness and the minute detail inside the world/s of TDM spoke to me when I saw the show during previews in 2013, got inside my brain and my bloodstream, and doubtless will continue to haunt me well into the future.
With this piece, I wanted to attempt to combine various imagery from the two contrasting worlds of the show, rather than interpret one space inside or outside the studios. I wanted to create something that could exist in both worlds simultaneously, something that makes you look closer, something that reflects the symmetry (things echoing one another, but not exactly), that alternately beckons and repulses. Items and architecture become iconography, objects are suddenly more than just things… they carry weight and history, significance and mystery.
