Blog / 2019 / An Inscrutable, Intense, Infectious Joy
January 1, 2019
Despite all this, I prefer not to be seen as simply joyful without any other kind of expression. My anti-pessimism can lead some people to see me as an effortlessly happy person, but it’s more complicated than that.
I share a different origin story of my art in this post, and I explain another way that pigs and joy are related in my mind in this video.
Fairy Pig is one of a series of paintings I have been making for years, representing the animals of the Chinese zodiac—2019 is the year of the pig. So far, I have painted the rabbit, the dragon, the snake, the horse, the ram, the monkey, the rooster, and the dog.
Fairy Pig is available for $1000 plus shipping—see all the artworks that are currently for sale. Prints and other arty items of the image are in my Redbubble shop.
