[quote]When I’m painting them, I’m not aware of what they want or what their message is [laughs]. My duty as an artist is to be accurate and real in their portrayal. But it’s great fun to be working with Wendy, who has a great way of interpreting what I’m doing.
She has the ear, so to speak, a way of listening to what they are saying. Which is great, because it means what we’re doing is alive. I’m very keen in doing things – especially about faeries – that don’t feel made up. I want things to feel real.
And the way we put the book together – it’s an emotional journey. We’re taking people deeper and deeper into faerie tales with this.[/quote]
