In 2006 I started creating drawings as a way to continue to get ideas out without rushing my photographic process. I deal with many similar themes in both the drawings and photographs, but with the drawings there is an extra layer of playfulness and pathos due to their style being similar to children's drawings and illustration.

These drawing are a manifestation of the art I would have made as a child if I had been born a boy. For this series in particular I used a significant amount of pinks and purples in the palette to play with stereotypical notions of masculine vs feminine. These images also represent a way for me to continue to address themes of war in a more generic sense.

Generic Photoshop Collages
2010-2009
Images constructed with generic Photoshop "Shapes" and "Brushes." These images speak about the impossibility and possibility of creativity and originality in such images, at a time when these limited tools are available and recognizable for so many.
