"A wry look at the challenges we might face later in life and the attempt to stay in the game and with one another. Popular children's cartoon characters from my youth appear as tattoos to heighten the playfulness of the work but also lend a nostalgic or sentimental feeling to reflect the heart of the piece, the love these two have for one another."
