I am an illustrator with almost 20 years of experience.

Let’s pretend. Common words heard by every adult and probably uttered as young children. “Let’s Pretend” starts the most magnificent moment of imagination that anyone knows.

As a child, my brother and I, would play this game on a regular basis. Always pretending to be our favorite superhero. We were big fans. I would always choose the Hulk, because he is the strongest there is…his words not mine. My brother would choose Spider-man, no doubt because he was funny, could avoid danger with his spider senses and could climb walls. We would then decide if we were having a team-up against Dr. Doom or if we were battling one another, as Spidey and the Hulk often did.

This “let’s pretend” idea did not end for me once I became an adult, instead it grew and grew. Imagination is the base foundation of any illustration that I do. In a small way I’m pretending to be the character I illustrate. Spending a few hours, as I draw, to put on their costume and pretend that I am fighting crime, lifting a tank or climbing and jumping skyscrapers.

Did you lose that “Let’s pretend” part of you as you grew, probably a bit. But it is never too late to revisit the worlds of your imagination and reenergize the land of make believe. Just join me for a moment and “Let’s pretend”.
