Now there’s one thing peculiar about a shadow at night
When the human goes to sleep, it's shadow ignites

Have you ever thought, what if... when the lights go out and darkness falls, When the humans go to sleep... The shadows come alive. In a world where when we go to sleep our shadows detach them selves from us and go out on there own adventures. Tip toeing from rooftop to rooftop. To feel alive. Sneaking into their favourites shops for their favourites goodies. Living just as we do. 

This is my next big project I am beyond excited for, I thought of the concept of shadows coming alive and living their own lives apart from ours when I was chatting with my girlfriend while she was in paris. I wanted to be with her in paris to climb and sit on the rooftops to watch the world. I started thinking what that would look like. To the people below us, we would just look like two dark figures, dancing amongst the rooftops of paris. Then I thought of the line"We danced like shadows in the night". Which from there, that blew into million different ideas. I love creating. If it's making a drum beat, painting a picture, drawing a comic. Anything! It's the thrill of creation that drives me to wake up and hop on a boat to a channel island and love it.

So from there... I thought of the concept of a boy shadow and a girl shadow. Who meet up every night when their owners go to bed. To live a life of adventure. 

"Like rockets they took flight
And Danced, Like shadows in the night"
