Altered States of Mind
This image is a digital drawing using meticulous manual applications. This is a visual interpretation of Girl by Jamaica Kincaid. As being a story written in 1978 there are a lot of things in our culture that are different now, but unsurprisingly still the same. In Kincaid’s seemingly instructional story, there is young girl, who is repeatedly degraded by her mother. My response to her story is an escape of the domestic controlled confines of the home and a leap of faith into nature. This is a call to action to repowering of the word slut and a change of self, but own sluthood as immaterially as possible.
Your Opinion is Shit
This image is a digital drawing using meticulous manual applications. This is a visual interpretation of The Swan as a Metaphor for Love by Amelia Gray. Sawns are a bird that are often seen as a beautiful animal. But Gray takes a different grotesque spin on how she views a swan. As I was reading her very poetic story, I just got the feeling of someone venting their opinion of swan. It’s alright to have both a negative or positive opinion whether you think swans are the scum of the earth or elegant birds. But we all know those people that never have anything nice to say and think they know it all or are always right. This is a response to those types of complainers.
Letting Go of Sticks
This image is a digital drawing using meticulous manual applications. This a a visual interpretation of the story Sticks by George Suanders. My interpretation of Suanders story really struck me emotionally, thus I hoped to emphasize everything with an outburst of emotion. Using symbolism from the story, I crafted a serial killer vibe narrative of the release and letting go of my own father. The note cards flying in the air are things my father has said, and my interpretation of how he would have written them, which is purposely illegible. The breath is a reference to the film Doctor Sleep, which indicates the passing of ones of ones life force.
She’s Glowing (I’ve Been in Love)
This image is a digital drawing using meticulous manual applications. This is a visual interpretation of Taylor Swift from The Gulf Coast Literary Journal. Using symbolism from the story with each later corresponding to how many times Taylor Swifts name was mentioned, I created this. The figure in the center is supposed to represent the person you have right in from of you. Sometimes we get caught up with various aspect of life, and the person we love doesn’t even know we love them because of all the lives factors.
