Although a lot of my imagery lies in wait in my own head, rather a lot of inspiration within this project comes from other artists who make a strong use of symbolism and create their own strange and surreal realities. It’s fully developed worlds as well, solipsism with an ambiguity that makes it so very enjoyable. Odilon Redon is one such mind. Much of his work is in the form of obscure symbolism and dream scapes, folklore and mythology  warped into one aesthetic.

I mean, this stuff just looks so cool. Like Boshc, there is imagery that I’ve felt like I’ve been doing for a while that is reassuringly present amongst these far better artists.
