In 2015, I took a break from making shooter video-game-based images. The news of so many actual killings by shooter players affected me.

This series is about searching for the origins and catalysts for self-doubt that so many artists experience from time to time. In my case, it originated from a time when I was two years old and was chastised for drawing on and pulling off wallpaper from the bedroom wall in my grandmother's house. (The wallpaper in this series is vintage and resembles the wallpaper I drew on as a child.) The series is titled "Origins of Self-Doubt: Wallpaper Series" and it also explores feelings that were perpetuated in various forms throughout my career.
