Flying Calamari

I'm beginning to find some narrative in my illustrations - stories waiting to be told. This drawing gives me clues to go forward – to look for stories and find ways to hint at them in pictures. The idea of "ah, therein lies a tale" intrigues me suddenly.

As a designer, I'm used to the idea of imagery being used to communicate, usually in concert with type. Also, much of my favorite art is illustration and is inextricably tied to stories – designed to communicate in concert with words. I'm reexamining art that I like that isn't illustration. I see places and characters, but suddenly I'm also seeing stories.
