Inspiration

One of my childhood inspirations is E. H. Shepard, the illustrator for the Winnie the Pooh books by A. A. Milne. I used to read the books when I was younger, and I believe that because of this, I subconsciously use some of his techniques in my current work. I’ve always appreciated how Shepard narrated and added to Milne’s stories through images.2013_Canada_Article_Pooh
