Spirit Animal Collective

24 x 36” unframed, 30 x 42” framed
Graphite on paper. 2009

The largest drawing kozy has done in the "Unknown Portraits" style to date. Little did we know that cameras, at least in early incarnations before the invention of modern film, did in fact capture a piece of one's soulwith each picture. Here is a class photo where all the students spirit animals have emerged to pose with their "bodies".

The artwork will appear in our upcoming exhibition at Magic Pony's Narwhal Art Projects in Toronto opening tomorrow, October 1st, 2009.

Even viewing LARGE doesn't really do it justice...

Opening in Toronto was a blast!

Our opening in Toronto on Thursday, October 1st, was our first in over a year, and what a nice welcome back to exhibiting. The fans in Toronto are lovely and made us feel really welcomed. Also, according to kozy, they all have "GREAT hair!" So there you go Toronto - kozy has spoken and you have great hair. Thanks so much to everyone who came out!
