“I’m just a goat halfway through eating itself”
I would never have gotten into Anthropomorphic art (the crap I do now) without the interception of my former roommate and current long distance friend Ryan Kee. About 8 years ago we lived in a crappy little apartment in the worst part of Corvallis and were just trying to make a living working the worst jobs. Ryan always had excellent taste. Despite being in the ghetto of Corvallis, our apartment always had class (at least on the inside) because he is, and remains a master decorator. I had stopped doing art for quite some time at this point getting completely swept up in the young and hungry phase of my life.
Luckily for me, Ryan had a zest for beautifying the apartment. It just so happened that one late and rather drunken (on my part) night, Ryan had stumbled across a Pinterest post with a chicken’s head on a woman’s body. It was uproariously comical, we both couldn’t stop laughing. He wanted me to create something like it to hang on the living room wall as he had gotten sick to death of that ugly Ross abstract piano painting. Viola!
The Hot Chick
That was the beginning, the pieces that started it all.
I went through a burst of creative innovation. Moved onto dogs, birds, anything that fit the figure. This was the beginning of “Perfectly Absurd”. I didn’t end up refining my process until 5 years ago but still that was the true beginning of how I started getting into this particular style of artwork.
