I was lucky to get my hands on an old Fullerton High School yearbook from 1951. The old yearbook smell, and the black-and-white images of the The Pleiades (class of 1951) made me want to take everyone out of their class portraits, and out of the fifties into the present. I fell in love with the old photos of people in “old fullerton”. If their photos were found, then I think they were all meant to be brought out to the modern times and celebrated. I’d also got into ichthyology recently, and decided to combine both. So I’d create small pieces of all of them together. I’ve been drawing fish for a while now and its one of my favorite things. I have also included pieces of faces I have made over the years. All the faces I make have been either self portraits, people I know, or people I wish I knew. Most of these pieces have been successfully created with the help of Brenton Wood, Champagne, Fullerton vibes and all things that are creepy.
