Curiosities from the Anthropocene began as a series of colored pencil drawings of "curiosities". I was thinking about the 18th Century phenomenon of the "cabinet of curiosities". Where the privileged colonizer would bring back souvenirs of the Other. Here is a look at curious souvenirs that have come back from the late Anthropocene. I am taking the viewer to the post-apocalyptic space of their origin where songs of destruction are mixed with contaminated eroticism in the ruins. This is not, necessarily, a friendly cartoon.
