Iowa, 2021ish
Vol. 1
“Careful looking” can so easily apply to all manner of perception. Peeping, general inquisitiveness, and good/ill will inevitably fill the blanks of intention. Before narrative, before intention, before the opinion that emerges from perspective, there is the camera; what does it look like to compose a scene just as mindlessly?


“Ghost Town Denizens”
Iowa, 2021ish
Vol. 1 - 3
“Ghost Town Denizens” is dedicated to a growing selection of small town residents. The place is lost and each face will remain nameless. Their weather faces and frames are all that remain.


“Look! Line! Skinker!”
Iowa, 2020ish
A sneakpeek (and a promise, of sorts) inside the wasteland inhabited by Lil’ Skinker and friends! The horizon line is a primary antagonist of sorts.


“J Train”
NYC, 2020ish
A snapshot into a reoccuring instance with the MTA. Drawn directly after the depicted event in hopes of capturing the beautiful instance.
