This started with a desire to use colours like the ones I saw on the cliffs around Sedona, AZ and to have a Southwest aesthetic… thus the weird cow-steer thing. I don’t even remember if cows have horns and it really isn’t important right now. As my stylized cow was coming together, I realized it started feeling like cave drawing… well, if cave drawings were done by early cartoonists with access to oil pastels. I’ve always liked the purity of cave drawings (eg. Lascaux Cave drawings), they are direct in their depictions. A cow is a clearly a cow. A running horse, is clearly a running horse… etc… My matter-of-fact cow is staring right at you and emoting only one sentiment: “I am Cow!”

What do you see?

More to come…
