In much of my drawings and paintings I incorporate old mannequins, statues, or antique dolls. It's a theme that I explore often. One reason is because they don't move when I'm drawing them. Another reason is that I'm drawn towards capturing in my art, figures suspended in eras not their own and blurring the line between living and inanimate.

About a year and a half ago I was told by a good friend to check out this eerie, animated film short entitled Alma directed by Rodrigo Blass. They thought I would like it. They were absolutely right. It is fantastic and I recommend it. I often tell strange stories with my art and this is a story I would love to have told. Check it out at http://www.vimeo.com/4749536
