Fairy Tale Remnants is a collection of surreal narrative illustrated writing that reflects on the unsavory side of human interaction. The imagery is from the genre of fables and allegories, portraying psychological dramas where robots, animals, and dinosaurs embodying some aspect of ourselves, battle out impossible scenarios.
These visual tales are life stories told in the cartoon lexicon. Real-life desires and conflicts reimagined on a surreal landscape without its adherence to things like gravity or logic — a nod given to a dreamlike world driven by the unconscious. Predatory monsters and human beings fight for their interests without the benefit of civility.
In these modern fables, no one ever learns anything. The audience watches anyway, pulled in by the dark symbolism of these cultural icons engaging in new contemporary folklore tinged with creepiness and humor.
