About This Artwork: This is one of the paintings I made out in Joshua Tree for Scribbles in a Sandstorm. I rented a house up against the National Park for 10 days that had a detached art studio. It was the most beautiful place I have ever been to. It was silent and peaceful and I managed to create a ton of work.

This is a kind of a crazy idea of how my family evolved and how I came to grow out from the ground. It's all in fun, of course. My dad beginning life as a lizard, my mom arriving from the winds of Chicago, and my brother being cracked open from an egg that Jesus threw down from the heavens. When my brother was on drugs, he thought computers talked to him and each other. I hate to think I came from these kooks. THIS PIECE IS FRAMED.
