Call & Response

some of the work I make references other peoples works, this one is a response to the great Raymond Pettibon. this was made a few years back during my MFA but has never been shown before. ive always loved the VA-VOOM character from Felix the Cat and Pettibon's drawings. At the time I was reading lots of Roland Barthes, i really liked his thoughts about Toys, from Mythologies, being a microcosm of the adult world, Charles M. Schulz's Peanuts is a pefect example of this idea. I always loved that Lucy had a psychiatrist stand.


  1. there's a great Peanuts cartoon where Lucy and Charlie Brown play nuclear bombs, Lucy make that sound : )
