Historical Context:
"I love animation and comics...If done well, reading a comic can be like watching a movie...My paintings combine the graphic style of comics and animation with the more rendered look of classic paintings...These [thesis] illustrations explore the dreams of the heroine of this series: a young minority girl named Winnie...Each painting illustrates the inevitable fall into the land of the subconscious we visit in our sleep, along with the weird and strange ways our brain attempts to make sense of our role in this world." -Roger Boss
