A Summer in the Woods
As a member of the Secret Society of Ghostscouts, I had the opportunity to spend three months living in the wild woods of Northeastern Vermont.
"Freedom" is the last painting I completed during my residency. It represents the power of connecting with the natural world, believing in your own abilities, and the satisfaction of a hard day's work.
Selected Works from the Residency
This cabin - built collectively over the years by the Ghostscouts - was my home for the summer.
Every morning I worked on the communal spaces in the Ghostshrimp National forest; building on the log cabins, digging up a luxury natural bathing spot, clearing brush, and chopping wood.
In the afternoon, I worked on my own comics and illustrations, and explored the magic of the surrounding nature.
