135 GUNZ

135 GUNZ  ,  pen & ink  ,  48 " x 28 "  ,  2014

A hi-res version can be viewed in full on my website here

This is a piece attempting to revisit a general subject matter of drawing from my childhood, the one that most explicitly came to mind, which was the doodling of fantastical killing instruments. Fascinations with violence were, and certainly still are, a common thing to be preoccupied with as a boy growing up. It was interesting to dive into this project and feel a very similar sort of macabre joy in making them now, which says alot about the fetishization of gun culture in America, and it's seemingly indestructible spectre.
