I made these drawings using fineliners. What I like about working with ink is that it is final, and there is no correction. The images flow from my mind. Things I see in my day to day life morph into my little surreal reality that makes me laugh, admire, and marvel. It makes me reflect on the things I do and why I do them in that particular way.

Every person makes their own reality, whether they know it or not. I like to make people aware of that by exaggerating reality. But also, just make them smile.

I love meercats. Every time my dog does his meercat pose I melt.
