The names and colors are just a small homage to large influences in my art.

Indian Summer” is a name I chose because for my new print series because I’ve been heavily influenced by one poster in particular in my career- the poster for the 1960s movie, Endless Summer. The color schemes are more or less identical and I love silhouettes.

Cocaine Cowboys” series is the same art but put to a color palette of a different era- the ’80s. I stared at a number of TV shows as a child and Miami Vice is one of my all time favorites and is based on the real cocaine cowboys (cocaine runners) of the early ’80s.
