Portfolio Review: JK5 Talks New Work, Inspiration and Process

 

Blood Stone, 2011
"This is a new graphic of a guy drinking blood from a stone. There's a deep '60s illustration sort-of style and ingredient to it. But I'm trying to take it into the future. It's really fun the way I'm playing with word and image, and how the boundaries between the two have just dissolved. Words are just a few beats from images, and vice-versa." 

 

 


Threemorrow, Threemorrow series, 2011
"To me, these are biological cartoons from another planet, the nature between our bodies and birth, our relationship to the divine, and larger cosmic guiding forces. The shield and circle shapes look like little space portal windows, and ending up looking like a page from a graphic novel. I was going for a super graphic, super flat aesthetic with very vivid colors. You can see the family in the bottom quadrant. Mother and father, and the baby's arms reaching up. The child's eyes have arms, grabbing the sun. And above that, the child is at once a god, steering his own planet of consciousness. The womb, that's a big part of my work- Vagina's. We're all made in Vagina." "
