I wanted to show something that you can only experience if you ride in the winter. There is something sort of magical about having your whole environment transformed into a blank white canvas full of potential. You just have to go make it happen.
I am an illustrator and printmaker based in Somerville, Massachusetts. I am most passionate about story telling, so all of my work has a pretty strong narrative element. I find the challenge of trying to tell a whole story in a single image, or at least allude to something larger and more complex than what you see, to be extremely satisfying. Creating an image is like a conceptual jigsaw puzzle.
Biking is definitely part of my creative process, but more for clearing my head. My best ideas come when I return to my work after a long ride and I can see what I had been working on in a fresh light.
This is purely technical, but this poster is my first print to use a mostly transparent color to achieve extra colors. Also, my house is in it.
I'm inspired by vast quiet solitude, loud confined proximity, and all the potentiality between the two.
