“Refreshed. These are images I have held in my soul for a long time and it is nice to release them and share them with other people I care so much about. It is very satisfying to know that many of the adventures I have experiences can be passed on to other creative artists that might benefit from them. We are all creators in one way or another and each person who creates will find their own way of doing it. The book will show how creativity was given to me.”Don Bluth
