This is a tongue-in-cheek piece about the moments after Aphrodite/ Venus landed on the shore, based on Venus on the Half Shell/ the Birth of Venus by Sandro Botticelli.

My drawings involve a lot of malabranche and women (particularly in intricate, impractical outfits), with a healthy dose of bird people, descendants of lizards, ravenous female airships, two-headed little girls, monsters, nuns, religious imagery, the Geometric City, the Geometric Palace, and machinery.

I like to use micron pen 005, metal nib fountain pen, murano glass fountain pen, ballpoint pen, sharpie, koh-i-noor woodless colored pencils, colored pencils, oil pastels, acrylic paint, pencil, and charcoal. I like to make both tiny, tiny drawings, and paint murals and decorations on walls.
