InspirationMy inspirations come from everyday life and how they present themselves into my dreams. I just so happen to remember a lot of my dreams and find ways to weave them together to create my stories. Often times listen very carefully during conversations because people tend to talk about very interesting and unique concepts that they themselves never really pick up on. Of course I am very influenced by other artists, films, music. I can't name anyone or any title specifically because I don't tend to look for details I like to focus on the major themes and ideas and how they affect. me.
