I fell upon the ablino myth this past summer, it was my drunken roommate who told me the story. Someone had told her about a cult of albino people who lived in Miamisburg, she couldn't recall the story at all.  What she told me was about how one night she tripped on acid and happened to be driving around in Miamisburg in the wee hours of the morninig and every car she pulled up next to had at least one albino in it. This inspired my series.

I was intrigued by the story because I knew a bit about Miamisburg, it didn't seem like the kind of place that would have a cult, especially one that consisted solely of albinos, so I attempted to illustrate the story or at least some of the characters that I pictured in my mind. I imagined that if there was this so-called cult of albinos that lived in Miamisburg, the members were probably mistreated so badly that the only time they could freely move around the town would be the wee hours of the morning and also the light wouldn't be as harsh so as not to hurt their sensitive eyes.

I chose to paint the albinos as I would imagine they would feel in a town full of football junkies and
strippers, desolate and cold and unfinished. They're trapped within a community that doesn't accept them and surrounded by people who are too afraid to look.  The final piece is titled Miguel or untitled mouth...
