Being both an art enthusiast and artist myself, growing up I found the work of pop artists extremely inspirational to me. The concept of using art as a means to distribute widespread messages on culture and society is something I both respect and aspire to in my own work. Andy Warhol’s The Factory was the catalyst. The Factory helped me see a different side to art, it proved to me that art can be more than therapeutic; it can affect an entire culture. Ever since then it has been my goal to try and use The Cartoon Citizen as an instrument that allows me to both personally show my own perspectives and messages to the world, as well as allow other like minded artists to do the same.
