This artwork is the beginning of a body of work called the Radio Series. Within each piece of the series I utilize found topographical maps of the Nevada region. I begin each piece by cropping a portion of interest then projecting it unto the paper. While tracing it onto the page I take artistic liberties and manipulate the composition as I see fit. Every painting in this series is inspired by NPR. This particular painting is loosely in reference to a broadcast about Tangerine, A transgender movie filmed entirely on an I Phone 5s. "Cow Bitch Boots" is a small scale sketch for a much larger painting series.
