"I found a long piece of wood lying around my studio (Invisible Dog building, Cobble Hill, Brooklyn) and wanted to draw something on it. "What could fit on a super long piece of wood?" I thought to myself...A snake? A ladder? A sub? Then I thought, ah yes, a stupidly long hotdog. Do you like dogs? Do you like processed meat snacks? Do you like fun? Then this is for you."
