‘The Sanctity of Sweet’
This is a special series that I’ll be working on throughout 2020. I’ll be creating 10 pieces based around cereal and will release work throughout the year (*trying to stick to the schedule below, but might make changes) with a special series release to tie it all up in December. Prints will be available for 72 hours following each release.
The Sanctity of Sweet:
When I was a kid, my parents didn’t often have extra money for brand name cereals. They were a rare treat and when I was lucky enough to have a bowl, I’d carefully strategize each bite so that there’d be just enough of the tastiest bits for that last spoonful of sugary milk. When I think about breakfast cereals these days, it’s often a reminder of where I’ve come from, but also a reminder that’s it’s ok to stay young and enjoy the sweet things. The indulgences in my life are a lot like the crunchy, sweet, chocolaty, or peanut buttery pieces from those brightly colored boxes. I try to make sure that I don’t take them for granted, but I’m also careful to spend more time enjoying them than I spend trying to make them last. I guess at the end of the day – or whichever part of the day you choose – cereal sweetens the milk in our bowls and our milk makes our cereal float.
During each release, my wife and I are going to enjoy a bowl or two of whichever cereal I’m paying homage to and we hope you’ll enjoy one along with us. While I’m sure I’ll still strategize my plan of attack, rest assured that I’ll be thinking about how much fun I’m having with every bite.
