I’m the luckiest in the world. I can sit here and think about things and give them shape, in pencil or digitally, I get to put words together to tell a story… to tell The story – The Story of things the way I see them, the way they reveal themselves to me… what could be better?
I want this space to be one where you can see pieces of the world, usually scattered in messiness, but making at least a little bit of sense, if not coming together in this amazingly meaningful way, that one can never escape if really looking.
A space with people and the outside circumstances they find themselves in, but also -if not mainly- peeking at the internal mechanisms that make people thrive, feel stuck and everything in between.
“Internal mechanisms”…that’s a little abstract…what does that mean?
Well, since abstract art is not my thing, even if I can appreciate it when others do it well, I am talking about using metaphor, storytelling and mainly narrative illustration to make these internal, often invisible triggers, processes and patterns understandable and manageable.
Just like naming birds and talking about their habits. Simple as that!
I hope you’ll join me on this!
