New artwork decorating the OPL.

Smoke ’em if you got ’em
Oxford Public Library

These drawings comment on addiction and my attempt to reinvent our trash and turn it into something positive and educational using bold colors and illusions of space. It is the positive visual experience that is being used to draw the viewer to a message. I believe we can reinvent our cultural bad habits into new ideas and positive experiences.
