"My kind-hearted imaginary monster wasn't imaginary afterall. I've been drawing ever since I can remember, and alternate worlds/dimensions have always been real and close by. Take the dreamworld, which is a journey into another realm. It's about bringing back bits and pieces of the ethereal planes and translating this information into the form of art and song. Creativity carries the core signature of emotion, and at its heart is the infinite drive of love and curiosity."
