Using found images I create digital collages that I use as source material to generate obsessively detailed drawings and paintings. The tight pictures that result use gore, banality and sardonic wit to make observations on a haphazard assortment of personal and socio-cultural issues. Unhealthy interests in heavy metal music, cable television, fantastic illustration, leftist politics, the macabre, sick humor, and extreme religious belief feed an aesthetic as rooted in subversive transgression as it is in traditional media.
