What started off as a simple self-portrait soon turned into a seven-panel scene reminiscent of a Japanese screen. I was originally inspired to do a life-size portrait similar to 80’s artist Robert Longo. But eventually, Salvador Dali’s elephants (with elongated giraffe legs) came to mind. Once that spike shape became my legs, I started repeating it in several of the panels. A fish windsock, found on a sushi menu, also found its way into the image. The fish eye itself developed into a pattern, nod to Takashi Murakami. The final Illustrator file was printed on an Epson 9600 wtih Smooth Fine Art paper, then mounted on substrate, and floated off the wall.
