this is a companion piece to my self-portrait. it is taken from a photo of my brother & i when i was baby. we have halos because i was commenting on catholic art as an influence as well as film as an influence–hence the film strip. my other self-portrait has to do with the terminator & my sarah connor/madonna complex. my brother introduced me to the terminator.
my brother was killed five years ago. i struggle a lot with his death. whenever i hear a single engine plane, i imagine it is him watching out for me & my minions. he imagined himself to be the michael the archangel. also a reason for the halos.
i think i would like to incorporate my brother loss into my comic. i would like to have mojo periodically visited by what she believes is the spirit of her brother. maybe a hawk.
it should be tomorrow that another moses jones goes live here. i have the preliminary bits done; i’ve just been busy with homework & trying to get to bed at a half-way decent time so that i do not have sleep deprivation (even though the sleep deprivation makes me even goofier.) but i have the bulk of my homework done & will be working on page ten tonight! yay!
