The Duck-Pilgrims
 
This is a depiction of the arduous but sadly un-chronicled travels of the intrepid Duck-Pilgrims: Maybe they are traveling through your living-room at this very moment...

Knotted toys
 
The toys of one’s childhood are inevitably incarcerated in the attic, store-room or basement, within which they are entombed inside musty cardboard boxes. During my research I excavated some of my toys from the dark vaults of the basement, and what confronted me was quite unsettling: Spiders had made their nests in the boxes containing my Legos and plastic toys. Blankets of gossamer and knotted threads of web shrouded my childhood objects, and most eerily the dried out husks of dead spiders covered my toys like some strange fungal growth.
This experience served as an inspiration for this drawing of arachnidan creatures composed of rope, weaving cocoons around my earliest playthings. Eventually these objects with their initial comforting connotations will become alien mummified entities.

The Duck-Pilgrims are still travelling through the vast stretches of subterranean forests and grottos formed by our furniture. Many of their number have already succumbed to the dangers found in this strange realm: Dust-Bunnies have carried numerous pilgrims away to be devoured in their burrows, while others have been ripped apart by spiders. But even so, they will continue undeterred with their un-chronicled travels… their end destination as much an enigma as their origin.
