Who are your artistic influences? I am constantly seeing new and amazing things every day from my peers. It excites me when I see someone tackle an idea in an entirely different way. I was madly in love with the illustrations in The Phantom Tollbooth as a child. I could remember every single subtle nuanced emotion on the characters faces and studying all of the details in the crazy made up lands. It really resonates with me how much these details support the words and help the readers imagination flourish. I hope that I have at times done the same.
