A Fools Comedic Cavalcade of Heads

Storytelling has always been an important aspect of human interaction. Through words and images, people are able to captivate one another with narratives that convey emotions and ideas. Much of my work is inspired by the aesthetics and humor found in the tales of comics and cartoons. The story you see here chronicles the adventures of an unfortunate skeleton searching for its missing head. I see its struggle as a reflection of the incessant search for identity that humans so often participate in unconsciously as we progress through life.
