Jakie and His Spirit Horse, 2021

Papers, ink and thread on abaca paper, 11 x 8 1/2 inches.

In 5th grade in art class, Jakie took a little test to see what his spirit animal was. His “spirit horse” is pictured here along with a self portrait that he did of himself. He made them, I put them together. I am not sure I would see Jakie as a horse, but maybe it was a bit of a superficial test. I like the concept though.
