How do you choose which fears to illustrate?
I try to find things that I haven’t done before. I think I’ve already done a bunch of “eyes getting gouged out” fears, so I haven’t done one of those in a while. But you never know, one might come along that really inspires me. Everyone who tells a story brings something a little bit different than anyone else.
If I read something, and an it makes an image in my head, or a feeling in my chest, it’s usually worth setting aside and exploring in some way. I need to feel an emotional response to my stories and drawings.
