Being an author is a very busy job, so I try to combine my career with all of my interests, like art. Writing on its own is fine and dandy, but drawing can help others see not just what you see, but how you see it. I like a fantasy element in my drawings, with an emphasis on the eyes. Eyes for me hold a lot of life and emotion and they are the things one sees through; observation is key to art and writing. That's why I draw eyes a lot; I like the reflective nature they have. In my turtle and book drawing, I tried to bring the focus onto the eyes of the turtle as the theme of the drawing: imagination. This is a common theme in my work, especially since imagination is key in being an author and artist. Worlds, wizards, and wonders of the universe -- that's what it's all about.
