The narrative I wanted to create would fulfill a fading desire and breathe life into the chimeras I had drawn in my notebooks. That visual mythology had been collectively called The Mortui Philosophies. I tried animation, but the repetitive work only produced frustration. So much in fact, I joined the 'sane' world and switched careers and did technical support. Secure, I had stopped painting and focused on what became a very rewarding career. After a few years lacking expression from my creative self, my Pazuzu Trilogy took its first breath.
