“Annoyed Grunt” is an assemblage of observations, daydreams, portraits and studies created digitally between commercial projects. The animations and artworks presented range from elements of the absurd and surreal to the mundane. “Annoyed Grunt” is a unique opportunity to explore the unexpected art that exists between the daily grind of commercial illustration and personal expression.
