Detail showing 'uncommitted souls'. Part of new drawing for Heaven & Hell exhibition at Espacio Gallery Jan 2014

In Dante's Inferno, the 'uncommitted souls' (those who were neither good nor bad or those who didn't take sides in the Rebellion of Angels) lurk at the entrance to hell while maggots feed on their blood and tears.

Skelly Ghosts

Skelly Ghosts inspired by David Shook's poem:

Below there are policemen, shoe shines, nurses, dwarves, muggers.
Flames leap from windows & the sirens' shriek proclaims
the lordship of violence.

Here on the tenth floor we dead walk with suspicion, distressed,
alert, they won't kill us again.

Statue. Naked from the waist down.

Rude. And scalped.

I Know Your Body by David Shook.

I know Your Body
                   after Victor Teran

If you were a city
I could give perfect directions
to wherever they asked me,
I could map your neighborhoods &
catalogue your smells.

If you were a city
I would get lost every day
down some new corridor.
I would toss my map, hitchhike
your suburbs, wonder your downtown

Here's a recent private commission to illustrate a poem about a nose! I used pen and ink and I think the poem is genius.
