When trailers and then each episode for the FX series, Taboo, blasted onto the big box I was hooked. With the association of Ridley Scott, Scott Free Productions, and this mysterious brit fellow Tom Hardy, I knew I would be a follower. Sordid, dark, dank, ridley-esque, cinematic and forbidden (the title hints to that), it would include in aces all these elements that drew me and like-minded viewers in.

I wanted to capture this enigmatic figure with the victorian cloak and tall hat, but was having a hard search. I proceeded to create this lush, multicolored background with existing patterns, then saturating the heck outta the colors. When I found a workable image of the dark man, the piece was almost there. I dropped in the last bit, an old, black ship illustration I recently used on another collage piece. Taboo, a dark, but delightfully different piece for me.

Can’t Find My Way Home 382

Can’t Find My Way Home 382, based on the classic hit by Blind Faith. A tribute to all Supergroups including Blind Faith, Traveling Wilburys, Bad Company and The Dirty Mac

The album was released in the UK with a cover photo of an 11-year-old girl named Mariora Goschen. The cover photo because as famous as the album itself, since it showed Goschen naked and holding a model spaceship.

Bob Seidemann came up with the concept and took the photo, which represents humankind’s relationship with technology (this was when the mission to put a man on the moon was big news). The band wasn’t yet named, and when Seidemann took the photo, he called it “Blind Faith.” Clapton decided that should be the name of the band.

Drake 379

Drake 379. No, not the rapper. But the larger than life, fire-breathin,’ green, scaly, scary dragon in both mythology and media. Something enormous and awe-inspiring in scale and size, fantastical and terrifying at once, the supernatural stuff of dreams and nightmares. Drakes are smaller than dragons, but still fly and breath fire but have no magical abilities. Basically, Drakes are evil.

Finding art like this that is so mystical, wonderful and amazing, that is hundreds of years old, is truly refreshing. Looking at images on the Internet Archive Book Images on Flickr is a visual treat. Using some of this original imagery in my collage work is an honor.

Mst 380

Mst 380, inspired by the always talented Ulrich Schnauss, with Jonas Munk, from the new, instrumental album Passage. Inspired by all blissful, instrumental, ambient post-rock (or whatever you wanna call it)

Being drawn to the mystical since I was young, I seem to veer toward it in my work. Not religious by any means, I still gravitate towards spiritual icons and symbols. This was another old illustration, black & white and simple, yet powerful. It was a joy building off this mystical and wise- looking monk.

Most I can say about this piece, is I was excited about the background pattern, which was part of my photo shoot at Mare Island, CA. Populated with vacant, torn up buildings, I was in my visual element. I added the girl and bear for dynamic kicks, from previous collages.
