Ah, the glory of grad school, where you are encouraged to make your stuff as freaky as you can. These were studies I did prior to developing my thesis idea. I ended up writing, illustrating, and designing a book about sacred space.
These little shrine collages were the start of it all. Different animals entirely from the thesis as it turned out, but sort of elegant on their own. The photos were taken in the California desert, out on the Pearblossom Highway.
