Art Description

New Media: Ink and Digital on Other.

In a fit of nonspiration I drew a chicken in a cigarette. That rooster happened to be an Americana, and that sparked a whole process of thought about the machismo hipster culture that I find myself on the fringe of; American Spirit Cigarettes, old F100 trucks, PBR, jean jackets, backyard chickens, etc.

I find myself drawn to this culture and repulsed by the narrow profile in which I might be seen after 10 years of unconscious transformation.

To be honest I have no jean jacket (and no predilection to them), and I've never been cool enough to smoke American Spirits. As for everything else, I came about it honestly, and, later, a subculture of people with similar interests emerged.

Regardless, as men, we all struggle to figure out what manhood means, and this image is a decent example of where I am now.
