Seamus on his inspiration: “My imagination, my spontaneous organization of image, text, gesture, drawing childhood, cartoons, comic books, mad-libs, character design and abstraction exaggerations. Color [in other works] comes from a natural love of color theory and alchemy. Other inspiration is mythology, magic and folktales; all mixed into my style of drawing and painting.”
