Some people sketch to feel creative outside their jobs, others may write or paint or sew. I like to tear apart classical paintings and illustrations. To me, there is something special about things that are broken, messy, and distorted. An image may speak a thousand words, but what happens when you break the image into blocks, or tear apart the color values… The story takes on a completely new and refreshing meaning.
