Markus Linnenbrink

p p p " Mostly my influence comes from my childhood, and the fears that followed me as I grew up. Cartoons, comics, fun, insecurities, happiness and anger all intermingle in my work. I bring all of this together in paintings, drawings and mixed media. My work usually deals with the different emotions and feelings: happiness, sadness, curiosity, anger, etc, but more than anything, I like to have fun with my imagery. Usually though, the interpretation of my work is left up to the viewer, letting them establish their own ideas of my world, much like we are left to interperet the real world on our own." - Jimbot p p
