Visual art has always been very influential to my writing. In some ways I think I began to write mainly because I couldn't draw well enough to put the pictures in my head onto the paper. I drew them with words instead.
Before I start writing any book, I go through my binders of and folders of stored images and sort out any that have a similar feel to the story I'm about tell. There are several artists whose images I frequently turn to. One of them is James Jean. I thought I'd share some of my favorites from the Fables comics so you could get a glimpse into what fuels my imagination.
