I want my viewers, in my more current pieces to feel nostalgia. I want them to remember the books they were read during bedtime stories, and the fairy tales they grew up on. I was read to constantly at night as a kid, and even though I could not understand the words or read, i loved the pictures and wanted to know how to make them. I want to bring back some of the past, invoke a little Arthur Rackham and other great illustrators, and remind some people how beautiful a children’s book can be.
