When I was very small, I couldn’t sleep.
There was a book I loved called “Ant and Bee Go Shopping” which was full of detailed illustrations of huge, futuristic cityscapes (or at least they seemed huge to me) full of Lovecraft/Escher-style wonky perspectives, roads that looked like roller coasters and tiny, subtle jokes woven into their fabric. I would put the light back on and lose myself in those pictures for hours, making my own stories inside them. I aimed to draw something that could do that for everyone.
This is for other children (or anyone else) who can’t sleep.
