Folktales and urban legends from around the world have always fascinated me. Stories of mysterious creatures like the Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot and the Wendigo inspire much of my work, and fuel my imagination to create my own strange creatures that defy explanation. Who’s to say that the Jersey Devil doesn’t exist? Centuries ago tales of huge sea monsters terrified sailors, and now the giant squid is scientific fact. Perhaps the stories of cryptids are not as farfetched as they seem.
