Artist's Description

comics collage

9 1/2″ × 7 1/2"

Summer 2006

This piece is about insomnia after the terror of waking from a nightmare. The black horse is a visual pun meant to represent a literal “night mare” Religious elements I added to give the viewer a sense of impending doom making this one of my darkest and most startling collages.


The materials used in this work were derived from various magazines, perhaps including, but not exclusive to; National Geographic, National Geographic Travel, Architectural Digest, Outside, Smithsonian, In Style, Playboy, Transworld, Reader’s Digest, Sailing, Sports Illustrated, Field & Stream, Marvel Comics, DC Comics, and Skateboarder.

I have altered, rearranged, and used the fragments of photographs and advertisements published in these magazines in a way inconsistent with their original context so that my derivative works do not infringe on any copyright. However, on the off chance that anyone recognizes any photograph fragments I have used in my work let me know so i can credit it properly. Thanks.
