Boulevard of Childhood Dreams
Boulevard of Childhood Dreams was my first commission. Since it was going to hang in a young boy's room, I thought about some of the stuff that kids think about. Pirates, aliens, cryptids, and so on. Then I thought about a town where all of that stuff lived. In the back of my head were Ray Bradbury greats like Something Wicked This Way Comes,, books I love that are in some ways cursed with a naiveté that no longer translates into our cynical world.
Painted on masonite, it's the biggest thing I've finished so far. Of course, the prospect of all that space to fill was terrifying.
