I've noticed that many of my images correlate with comic covers, breakfast cereal and lolly packaging, as well as CD, book and magazine covers. This is not a surprise really as these are the things that I used to spend time visually absorbing when I was developing - especially comics and books.
My brothers and I had a collection of comics in the thousands and yet when we went to the second hand comic shop in Roppongi, I was able to sort through the incoming availables and know if we had it or not, by going through my visual filing system. It was such a beautiful and fulfilling experience to collect (and read!) comics. A true visual education. Serene, soothing, engaging. Each one held a new series of images and words that would transport you. Given the choice I would much rather read a pile of comics than watch anything that TV had to offer. So much more variety, craftsmanship, invention in a comic. Magic little things.
