About this series
I look for quotes that not only provided a great visual to play off of, but that speak to life in general. It's crucial that each quote has a deep meaning to it so the viewer can relate. Once chosen, I spend hours toiling over ways to conveys it's exact meaning and represent it in the most minimal way.
