Working on the sketchbook project has been one of the most inspiring experiences that I have had as an artist. My then girlfriend, now fiance, who is also an artist, had done one herself. She suggested that I get into it. I've been drawing since I was a kid, but had put it down in the last decade to focus on writing and design. This project really re-lit the flame. I really had so much fun with it. There is also something awesome about the working within the limitation of knowing you will have to let go of the book, but you are also very attached to it, and it forces you to balance those two conflicting impulses. Far my subject matter, I wanted to take universal symbols of mythology and mash them up, and find the consistencies and contrasts. I'm fascinated by what's come before; all the symbolism and creative work, all the myths, legends, stories and art that comes from the shared experience of human culture.
