The blood in the drawings is my own. For over a year I used a lancet to prick my fingers and collect the blood in a shot glass. Then a friend who is a doctor drew my blood into tubes that I stored in the refrigerator.

Issues that infuse this work are repetition, obsession, and taboo. The drawings are made entirely of text. I use a single phrase that I repeat within each drawing. Some examples are: inside of me; bite harder; still waiting.
