I was motivated to paint this piece when I was spending a ton of time working from my small studio apartment in NYC. The best lighting in my apartment is at 9:30 am, but the rest of the day it’s a bit cavelike. Having recently quit my job at the time, I remember everything was unexpected and I was just trying to embrace whatever came my way.
Steampunk Toy Series. Spudnik, as I call him, was a project that was inspired by a craft swap project hosted by 99homebrew. Designers and crafters alike randomly were paired with a different theme and a material. My theme was “steampunk” and my material was “old toy.” Every project was open for interpretation.
