I was living in a squat near the Anne Frank Huis in the canal district of Centraal Amsterdam when I met Frank.  He is a librarian and I’ve always loved libraries.  Like Hermione Granger in Harry Potter, it’s the first place I go to for answers; if anything, the inaccuracies and inconsistencies in information found on the internet cannot change my trust, faith and reliance on books or the knowledge of those who specialize in them.  It was Frank who introduced me to Lotte Reiniger‘s silhouette animation when I needed justification for my work. He created this series of prints for United Colors of N.I.M.B.Y.  Recently, I’ve been modifying these to create limited edition palettes.
