 In the fall of 2010 I took a month long bicycle trip. Thanksgiving day I stopped just outside of Manning, South Carolina to look for a camp site. I entered the woods via an overgrown road. Down the road a few hundred yards, and after a few turns, I spotted a skeleton in the leaves. Skeletons are a major aesthetic influence on my artwork, and evoke strong memories of my family and my childhood. Coming across the skeleton I felt like that place in the woods was a perfect temporary home. That night I talked to my younger brother on the phone as I cooked my Thanksgiving feast. I carried the skeleton with me for the rest of the trip, drawing it and pondering it's form from time to time.
