Artist Statement

Artist Statement:

My work is a memoir told across two realities. On one side I am exploring my post-punk experience of marriage and fatherhood; the other explores the comparison of fatherhood to that of a creator god and mythic hero. This duality is something that I call “Dadness.” Fatherhood is both an acceptance of mortality and a statement of omnipotence as a literal creator of life. My work brings together the graphic language of comics and punk rock aesthetics with two bodies running parallel to each other: a blog that connects fatherhood to my punk rock past and a visual narrative that explores a fictionalized version of those events, with bridges throughout.
