Bummer is a very small original gouache painting made with archival materials. The image is based on my ongoing development for the character NEIGHBOR. This character is designed to be ambiguous in spaces that are familiar and unfamiliar. My hope is this series will help us rethink the way we approach people who are unfamiliar to us "strangers".


In Bummer I wanted to expand the habits of the character. Also maybe there's more than one of these characters. Some are good and some are bad. I would classify this one as bad because of the cigarette. I've thought negatively about cigarette smoking for a long time. There's something about the image of someone smoking that puts me off. Megan and I had a neighbor for two years who lived in our duplex. This woman would smoke every night inside the house and claim she wasn't. The smoke would always seep into our bedroom and make it difficult if not impossible to sleep. Bummer is also a reference to the way smokers ask for a free cigarette from other
