"Hancock's cast of characters is a rogue's gallery: some are headless lumps and others look more like animals than human beings, with a walrus, four-eyed rooster, and other mutants. These creatures are part of an ongoing saga that Hancock has been telling for the past decade. He calls them "Mounds"-plant-animal hybrids that behave like all of us, sometimes admirably and sometimes badly. Hancock's homegrown mythology includes a creation story, an epic battle between good and evil, an attempt at reconciliation between color-loving carnivores and scrawny, subterranean vegans, and much more." - Quote source regarding another artwork by Trenton.

More of Trenton's art can be seen at the James Cohan Gallery.

Trenton Doyle Hancock was previously mentioned on Monster Brains in 2006.
