The fantasy genre itself is as old as the hills themselves for it’s in our nature to dream and imagine. It’s part folklore, part history and a touch of whimsy, it’s the unexplained realms and it’s in the adventure of the future! As an artist, fantasy is my place of reference, a place to nurture my gifts and to feed my spirit.
“Fantasy is escapist, and that is its glory. If a soldier is imprisoned by the enemy, don’t we consider it his duty to escape? … If we value the freedom of mind and soul, if we’re partisans of liberty, than it’s our plain duty to escape, and take as many people with us as we can!”
