The Avett Brothers. True Sadness. July 2016. For Rolling Stone Magazine, review of the Avett Brothers album "True Sadness". The core theme of the album is about the duality of life's joyful and sad moments.
Nekomata. October 2016. "Night Parade of 100 Demons" for Northern Contemporary Gallery. For this painting I tapped into my dog Betty's fear of cats. Nekomata has a double fireball tail for delivering twice the whiplashes. The parameters for the show: create a white demon on black square facing left for display in the gallery that mimicked a parade, based on the Japanese folklore Hyakki Yagyo.
