A brief comment on my illustrations:
My goal in creating these illustrations is to weave a complex story in a setting both real and imagined.
I am a lover of the surreal and attribute some of my influences to Salvador Dali, René Magritte, Max Ernst and Giorgio de Chririco. I also want to give a nod to Hieronymous Bosch; his fantastical figures have always fascinated me.
While I think the titles of the illustrations shed some light on my thinking, I leave the full interpretation up to the viewer.
