I have mentioned before that my personal work is highly inspired by books. Many times I will just be reading something and an image of a scene will appear. Something that I need to create.
“I want the things most people don’t notice. The ring and the key and the way you have of wearing everything on the inside.” ― Victoria Schwab, The Archived
“I pull the key from around my neck and slip it into the hole beneath my brother’s card. It doesn’t turn. It never turns. But I never stop trying.” ― Victoria Schwab, The Archived
"Does the bird feel the weight of its wings?" ― Leigh Bardugo, Shadow and Bone
This won't be the last time that these authors will appear as influences in my work. I hope you'll stick around to see what happens next.
