When I was 10 I floated on my back in a Howard Johnson's pool staring at the globe lights that hung from the wooden arched ceiling. Emotional Rescue by the Stones was playing on the jukebox.
I am illustrating how a moment felt to me and I want to make a connection with the viewer. I like the fact that there can be a shared experience, no matter how seemingly obscure it is. I don't have it in me to go full abstraction. I need something tangible to ground me. I walk the thinnest line of narration and even if it's just a pattern, it's coming from somewhere. It can cause a memory.
