 Artist Statement

Marc’s first car was a Mercedes-Benz. It was a fast yet silky ride, perfect for a hit of adrenalin. But even though it was fun, all he really wanted was someone to go on a romantic drive with.

In life, we can tend to forget that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey. And if you’re going to go on a journey, you might as well do it in style. Here Dogman and Rabbitgirl are in a 1957 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster. It’s a classic sports car worth over a million dollars and was the fastest production car of its day.

It doesn’t matter how fast they go, when Dogman puts his arm over Rabbitgirl’s shoulders, it drives her absolutely crazy with desire.
