While trying to think of interesting and original ways to promote my illustration work, I hit upon the idea of creating a picture book with the aim of explaining to my then unborn son, Sam the particularly slippery subject of the imagination. The rapid onset of parenthood and the possibility of seeing the world afresh through the eyes of a brand new, uncluttered human being had me thinking seriously about how I might help him navigate this strange and amazing adventure he was about to hop aboard that we call life. How could I share with him something that I held so dear but that seemed so elusive to so many yet so important in the formation of everything we see and experience around us?
Well, I created another world. A world of the inside. A world of illusion, magic, imagination and mystery. A world that will hopefully inspire new connections and combinations of ideas. It’s a world that can be accessed by everyone, and Earl and Walrus are your guides.
Great plans are afoot..
I’ll keep you posted.
