Abstract/Artist's Statement

Before coming to Bard, my art was largely self-taught: doodling with a ballpoint pen, creating my own techniques and characters, and finding my own influences based on what I would encounter in my everyday life.

I continue to find influences through my studio arts education, which has broadened my repertoire of inspiration. Drawing provides a way for me to process and make sense of the visual information I absorb, and re-communicate that information back into the world. This holds especially true for cartoons.

This project operates under the classification of art as the use of techniques and materials to manipulate the emotions of the viewer and this is what I strive to do. I aim to generate an emotional response from the viewer both with the humor of the cartoons, as well as with the technical quality of the work. I also aim to create a product from which others can derive meaning. The goal of this project is to create such a product, informed both by my investment in cartooning and my formal education in studio arts.
