“My father had a library full of science fiction, and an indestructible light-hearted look on life. My mother was more serious of nature, but had a talent for drawing and painting effortlessly. Batman, spaceship Orion, and the films of Karel Zeman are among my very first memories. Stories were about traveling through space, time, or the human vascular system. By the western window of our living room, next to the bookshelves full of imaginary worlds, there was a small desk. I sat there every day drawing, often for many hours. Besides reading, I didn’t do much else. Our family wasn’t extraordinary, but fantasy was welcome.”
