The first artist that caught my eye when looking at new artists was Hannah Stouffer. I like her chaotic crammed compositions and her use of animals in her work though it sometimes veers into what I like to call mtv art. George Grie is a surrealist artist and I like how he depicts buildings in his work as well as the overall sense of desolation. Jacek Yerka is a polish artist that was the real find . I love his detailed paintings and that theyre strange yet accessible even playful.

For my new series Ive been thinking a lot of creation myths. Ive always found it fascinating that there are giant beings such as Ouroborous or the turtle or elephant that supports the world on its back. This scale shift always entertained me as how these giant animals existed before the planet itself. I also was intrigued by the little planet that was in the children's book The Little Prince . Lately people have been creating horizon photos in a circular fashion so that they resemble such little planets so I have been looking at those as well, not to mention those Yes album covers by Roger Dean that I used to copy as a kid.

This is a record of my progress in my senior studio class for college here I will record my process in creating a series of work. I will publish not only the works in progress but also my thought process; my influences, the artists that Im looking at, as well as other things that catch my interest that are relevant to my work. To start off with here are some images from the past year or so that reflect what I want to do in my work. There are two painting series of three paintings as well as various prints.
