Mammoths vs. Cavemen
Mammoths vs. Cavemen
From squirrels vs. bugs, to tables vs. chairs, to cowboys vs. aliens and cookies vs. milk, THE LINE WARS is a personal commitment to perpetually draw anything imaginable engaged in conflict.

The drawings emerged from sketches and doodles, the most rudimentary expression of visual thinking. Lines, being the simplified beginning of drawing, are akin to our most basic subconscious processes and inner thoughts. The images are based on the entertainments of childhood and adolescence. Video games, action figures, strategy board games; always two forces opposing one another. Each panel encapsulates a single battle which when viewed en masse take on epic proportions.

THE LINE WARS is a celebration of childhood, of making impulsive, nonchalant drawings and a highly personal journey into nostalgia and an homage to geekdom. Using a single type of pen on a single type of paper, it is a reductive inquiry into the process of art-making.

As a continually growing series, THE LINE WARS is a part of my daily routine, my life- drawing while waiting for the bus or for the eggs to cook (hmmm…eggs vs. buses?)
