little asian girl flies away in dino suit with friend

boys & girls (and everyone in between), i am MF’in exhausted.  5 hours of non stop painting got my arm feeling like a limp piece of pulp. and that still wasn’t enough time.  near the end, i found myself racing against the sun to clean my shit up and throw on last minute touches before it got too dark to take pictures.  it’s not everything i want it to be, but imperfections can motivate us to go harder next time. could you imagine how boring life would be if everything was all goodygoody perfect?


this piece was inspired by the memory of childhood and the feeling of imagining.  before imaginations were tamed.  before outlandish dreams were filtered through sustainable models.  before we surrendered ourselves into the “professional” world.  more than ever i realize the profound meaning in the disney classic, “peter pan”.  GADDAM, pete is on some real shit. peter pan is my homie for life.  i did a rendition of “where the wild things are” by creating a new character combined with all my likings: lobster claw, bear paw and mermaid body.  i threw a little asian girl into a dino suit.  together they are flying off into a wonderful place.
