This started as a series of sketches based off a dream called Talimasis: a nonsense word that my brain came up with on 11/22/2015. A thread emerged from the random thoughts. The random thoughts were strung together and a loose narrative appeared.

I often make drawings and things based on nonsense words and ideas that I've written over the years from that moment where you begin falling asleep, and your brain fires at random.

A version of this was shown as part of a gallery show next to paintings and drawings.
