A Visual Ode to My Home

My family and I packed all of our belongings into a million cardboard boxes and moved away from the town that I’ve called home for 21 years. So, I created this series, "A Visual Ode to My Hometown," to commemorate some of the places that I will miss the most.

My Studio Desk (1/3)

My desk, tucked into the corner of my childhood bedroom. The place where I made and discovered some of the most important art. And, where I developed some terrible posture as I slumped over my sketchbook and struggled to learn Adobe. 

The Beach (2/3)

A Florida staple, and the place where I spent so many childhood summers! The beach is tied to some great memories: family board games, Friday night 5ks, too many sandcastles and chapter books, Nick At Nite marathons, saltwater taffy, Angelo’s pizza, walks after the crowds cleared out, some awful sunburns, the oddest tourist traps at the pier... 

The Family Room (3/3)

 

The jackpot of of catching up and big laughs. My favorite part of this room is when we all gather and re-watch old home video tapes and question how the heck my parents raised 5 wild kids... still wish my dad would have submitted some of those to AFV.
