If You Nose You Nose is a classic image in which some of those subjects are wrapped up inside vintage political cartoons and hand-drawn animation aesthetics. Depicting a bag of powdery substance in a creative delirium, holding a palette in one hand and a brush in another, the screen-printed image can be seen as a commentary on the influence of drugs in creative expression. But, with different drawings on the reference picture and the blank canvas, Christian pushes the narrative of the works to different, oftentimes unexpecting spheres.
