I don’t consider myself a writer, but this project was just too interesting for me to ignore. I am NOT a writer. I leave writing normally for friends like ilike or joseph. Its part of the Sketchbook Project Tour 2011. I decided to go with Nighttime Stores because the theme resonated best with me. I love reading grim stories, and being told scary stories and fairy-tales in a low-light setting so maybe, just maybe, I can take all of those stories I was told long ago and re-invent a few of them in this project and illustrate them; a definite challenge for me, so please do wish me luck!
The cover by the way, is a papercutting/ink drawing on the A5 moleskine sent to me by the art-house coop.
