"Forever and a Day Away" started as a simple illustration in an adventure story. It began as a long journey through mountains, oceans and skies. This piece has come to represent much more than the original narrative and representation. Forever and a day away is how long it feels to complete each intricate piece. On a much deeper level, forever and a day is how long it takes for an artist to find that elusive feeling of artistic success through endless discovery and experimentation while constantly battling the inner critic.
