Dust Memories was originally compiled from a series of drawings created in the fall 2005. These drawings were done on Bristol board and used charcoal, citrus transfers, watercolors, acrylics, collage, and pen and ink.

Dust Memories is a visual representation of the ambiguous and anxious moments of a deployment with the 1244th Transportation Company in support of combat operations in Iraq. The book is conceived a a repeating cycle, which is a metaphor to trauma's continually recurring thoughts and represents a journey that is stoll being carried out by soldiers in Iraq today.
