Also an accomplished artist, J.D. Lenzen draws and paints characters he calls "Moles", hairless figures that personify concepts and ideas the fall between the cracks of description. Like most of the color choices he makes to demonstrate his knots and ties, each painting or piece is a colorific expression of the creativity and fantastic images that routinely fill Lenzen's mind.
