I began this little set of drawings in my notebooks in 2006, and they sort of languished until spring of 2009 when I found the material I needed to frame them. I pulled them out and tooled them up a bit and they just came to life in the frames.

They are surrealist images in the classical sense: symbolic transmissions directly from my subconscious. They seem to form a loose narrative around loss, mortality, and social impositions on the individual.
