I have a powerful passion for animation and cartoon art. From an early age, cartoons mesmerized me. I use cartoons as a facet when creating my work. I bend, twist, and form shapes and figures much like cartoon faces. Cartoons are very mulit-layered. They can be very funny and deal with deep issues at the same time. I also use humor in my work to address darker themes. Humor makes understanding and dealing with dark themes easier to manage.
