Extended Family work by Jeanette Daphne Thomas
Thomas studied at CSU for two years, followed by a brief stint at CIA. “Since then,” she writes, “I’ve made event fliers for my previous bands, made cover art for friends bands albums, including a 7-inch record for Herzog, released on the UK’s Transparent Records, and [for] my current band, The Very Knees. . . . Comic books got me into making art, and sustained me while keeping my form progressing. As far as portraiture, there is nothing more interesting or telling than the human face; it contains a world, as well as life’s secrets and mysteries, the universe in miniature.”
