The creatures, these long-nosed humanoid beings, are devoid of any recognizable facial emotion. Instead, it is through clothing, body-language and hand gestures that emotion is communicated. They are like actors on a stage, willing to dress up and play any role I feel necessary to convey a specific narrative, much like a blank canvas waiting for paint. In one series the creatures are messengers taking a newly deceased soul to heaven, in another drawing they mourn the loss of a friend. I find these creatures, rather than humans best illustrate these feelings in a concrete yet mysterious way.
