my whole world is coming apart

This series of 31 drawings is settled in the melodramatic, synthesized atmosphere of the music of John Maus. It’s an attempt to remember: my own childhood and the characters of Disney, which I internalized at this time by drawing them over and over again until they became an unforgettable schema. Above that, the drawings explore the capasity and colour range of the permanent markers I used.

post scriptum: 2009 the whole world was a totally different place obviously… In 2021 it’s sad to see JM openly joining the rioters at the United States Capitol attack. It goes without saying that I can’t even listen to his music anymore.
