An image painted directly onto a wall. It's in a cartoon-esq style. On the left is pink door without a handle. It has an illustration of a teacup balancing on top. To theright is a tall candle that is placed inside of a cartoon heel-type shoe. To the right of that is a smaller illustration of a framed piece of wood that has two cast donuts balancing on it—which roughly resemble eyes. The door has a long stethoscope hanging on it.

Image 20
A sculpture that is a large broken piece of a dorito chip. It's bright orange with texture and it is hanging on a weathered white brick wall. The piece is about twelve inches high by twelve inches wide but in a triangular form.

A gouache painting on paper. It is in a cartoon style and is mostly black lines of a girl with a single braid. She has a droopy eye with pink eyelids being pulled down by a wishbone on a string that is attached to her neck.

Image 22
A variety of chopped up cartoon images back painted on a gallery window using acrylic paint. It has a medley of items including a small chair, droopy arrow, a framed piece of wood taped up, a balloon arm with a broken necklace and cherries dangling. Everything is interconnected with a black string.

Image 23
Another chopped up cartoon-esq painting. It is back painted on a piece of acrylic. The piece is balanced on two my little ponies that are sawed in half and attached to the wall. The ponies are blue and roughly two and a half feet tall. The whole piece is about seven feet long.

Image 24
A detail of the previous image. It depicts a smurf body, a coat and hooved legs. The character is holding a floppy object that is wrapped with multiple bands. An arrow pierces the smurf foot head.

Image 25
An extra large saltine that is hung on a white wall. The texture is bumpy like a cracker and it is salted, as well. This sculpture is about fifteen inches square.

Image 26
An illustration. It is a pink polka dot abdomen with arms and legs. The hands are scribbles. The feet are platform shoes and multicolored. The abdomen is wearing a brown backpack of sorts.

Image 27
An image taken from a gallery opening where large toy furniture has been pieced together as a platform for chocolate buttons, plates and pre chewed chewing gum. The wooden toy is of a rocking horse but cannot be actually used by a child because it is just pieced together. People are standing around the sculpture and eating the chocolate.

Image 28
Another iteration from the previous photo—it is of a wooden toy bed. On the bed are colorful pieces of chocolate that have been cast into the shapes of plates, buttons and pre chewed chewing gum.

Image 29
An illustration. It is a shape that resembles a pink rib cage but is more symmetrical than the one found in a human abdomen. It is filled with a medley of colorful objects. They include bones, barrettes and other miscellaneous objects.
