I started illustrating the alphabet on a whim, just to see how much narrative I could wrangle out of a single letter. Sometimes it’s easier to be creative in restraints and the project has had momentum that’s carried it to the letter P. Since “A,” it’s kind of morphed into a transgressive children’s book. The world is full of beasts and grisly things, but I like keeping the whimsy about it.
