“In Six Years”

Pen and ink; 8 in x 10 in


This whimsical and surreal piece captures childhood memories well. There’s a feeling of nostalgia: video games and fandoms, slides and rubber duckies, lightsabers, and all around a mashup of memories. There’s a perspective of a city scape that looms at a distance, vibrant, but untouched by this moment. Although detailed, the elements are clean and clear, individually significant, but arranged to illustrate a larger, meaningful pastime.
