Artist Statement: Shown from left to right is the evolution of the horse from 50 million years ago to present day, culminating in "Horse Ebooks", a wildly-popular Twitter spambot. Its avatar (a stallion galloping through the ether) is the charming face of this Internet phenomenon, which periodically tweets poetic non-sequitors from notoriously bad e-books. The cosmic backdrop represents my hope that Horse Ebooks will continue to thrive for generations to come.

Medium: Digital / Acrylic
