Have you ever moved into a new home and found what looks like forgotten evidence from a crime scene? I haven't either, and my imagination never leads me into the direction that I could be next, but I'm sure it's fun to pretend someone's out to get me. Even more fun that I'm out to get someone else. So, if you ever wanted to "off" someone like a sloppy murderer, decorate your house like so just to freak out your guest.

Before getting accepted to grad school, I made a series of hand painted skateboards to build up my portfolio. You may notice a running theme in the series, but if not it won't matter. If you knew me and what was going on in my life around 2005, the message is pretty clear. The paintings are oil on used skateboards. I wanted used boards because painting on a smooth surface would not reflect the damaged surface of the images and issues they illustrate. From left to right the titles are Do not Touch, Jealous Again, Nothing Works Around Here, The Hand that Feed, and Untitled.
