NPR Final

Here's the final image for the NPR 2010 wall calendar. Be sure to order one when they're published later this year! This project was a lot of fun and a real honor to included.

Don Quixote: The Parliament of Death

Signor Quixote encounters a troupe of actors, set to stage a play called "The Parliament of Death." The actors portray Death, Love, a Demon, an Angel, and the Devil himself. When the figure of Death removes his skull-mask, a second skull is visible behind it. Don Quixote declares his passion for theater, "Since I was a boy I have loved mask-shows, and in my youth I have been ravished with stage-plays." All of Quixote is theater, a hall of mirrors where illusion and reality collide and often switch places.

Apuleius Drawings

I made these sketches as I reread one of my favorite books, The Golden Ass, by Apuleius. It's also called the Metamorphoses, and is from ancient Rome. It's a wild and hilarious fantasy that plumbs the depths and ascends the heights of humanity. The hero, Lucius, is transformed into a donkey and mingles with robbers, murderers, prostitutes, ghosts, witches, a guy with a nose made of gold, lovers, priests, and gods. He witnesses the whole mess of late-Roman life, from street violence and sexual degradation to the wistfulness of love and spiritual transcendence. It's a sort of ribald Romana Commedia. As Oscar Wilde put it, "We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars." And it's also the source of the profound and lovely tale of Cupid and Psyche. These sketches aren't in any particular order.
