This is a scene from Cops, he says, pointing to a black-and-white drawing of a man pointing a gun to another mans face with watercolor painted trees in the background. Another work, St. Peter, is inspired by the crucifixion of the saint. A guy wearing a shirt, pants and socks hangs upside down (like Peter) sans cross.
Another painting of a friend smoking a cigarette is on a wooden panel propped up by a cinder block. Boone says the piece is reminiscent of the launch ramps he used to build as a teen that would get marked on with spray paint or markers. Somebody could have this in their garage for 15 years [and not even remember it], he says. Like relics of youth.
