"This piece was made towards the end of 2014. I was in my studio, listening to music and The Monster Mash came on. It was funny, because I just started painting to the song and that's kinda how it went.
This piece is more of what I'm doing today. It's kind of mashed up with all kinds of paint and different designs. It's got a lot fo elements of what I do.
It all kinda goes right. It's simple and to the point. Simplicity." - Cope2
