I was excited and inspired when Philip contacted me about a re-creation for his book Innocence Lost. Excited because I really like diversifying the genre range of my folio. It's too easy to get type-cast as JUST a sci-fi/fantasy artist. Inspired by the story he wove during our initial live chat meeting. Then again as I embarked on visual and historical research on a subject I really did not learn enough about in school.
Review: “I finished reading INNOCENCE LOST - A CHILDHOOD STOLEN last night. I read straight through one afternoon and the next day, because I couldn’t put it down. Mira’s story felt more real than any fiction I’ve ever read. The interview format places it in real time, and the complex characters further enhance the story’s telling. The reader is there, standing in line at Auschwitz. We all know where the lines end, yet we know Mira has survived to tell the story. We live the horror of the Holocaust through a child’s eyes and, then, the thrill of a life saved. It’s tense. It’s historical. It’s heartbreaking and, finally, it’s fulfilling. The use of German phrases throughout was the perfect touch. I highly recommend INNOCENCE LOST.”
