Doing illustration for kids is fun because it requires me to pull things and situations from my childhood. A lot of my free time was spent messing around in our chaotic garage. There was a brief time when a car my aunt gave me was parked in it, but other than that, there was simply no room for a car because of all the junk that was piled up there. My dad encouraged me to make my own toys and there was always plenty of tools and pieces of cars and machinery around to make things with, so this was probably the start of my imaginative thinking.
