Created this piece for my maps class. The assignment was to pick a chapter from the book “On the Map” and then depict an aspect of its contents. I chose the chapter on Treasure Island and treasure maps in general. There was a passage that stuck with me, describing how most treasure seekers don’t find any treasure on their expeditions. Rather, their experiences and comradery are what make the voyage truly valuable, if they live to see the journey’s end.
Advice he’d give a 12-year-old version of himself"It might sound oversimplified, but I’d say, ‘Shhh.’ It’s so funny how noisy my brain is - it’s what it does, it makes thoughts. And the problem is, I think in most of our lives the root of suffering is listening to that brain noise and actually identifying with it as if it’s who you are. That’s just the noise your brain makes. And more often than not, it probably doesn’t have much to say that’s going to help you. I’ve felt my best are the moments that I’ve been able to pull that plug and say, ‘Chris … shhh … shhh.’ And it’s not quitting, it’s not giving up, it’s not washing your hands of the thought, it’s rising above it. All the time I’ve spent suffering as a result of brain noise, hours of my life wasted. So that’s what I’d say: ‘Shhh.’"

My piece for Out of the Shire, a Tolkien inspired show at Gallery Nucleus. (look at that line-up!!). Opening on December 14.
(Did a first piece featuring Gollum, screwed it up, had to start another one … and I went with the first scene that popped in my mind. Hope the show isn’t nothing but Eowyns or Witch Kings…!)
