"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"I’m an artist, and my work is not just about illustrating something; it’s also about engaging the senses. And so once people have a look and they’re sympathetic to the work, then they might start to think, “What is he doing? What’s the work about?”
