Having a penchant for all things noir I’m inspired by everything from the hardboiled crime fiction of Dashiell Hammett and old-time radio detective drama Pat Novak, for Hire, to Louis Malle’s 1958 film Elevator to the Gallows and David Lynch’s neo-noir Mulholland Drive.
Sometimes it starts with a text which comes to my mind, other times I just start drawing and find the right lines to it. I’m trying to construct an atmosphere of stills from non-existent movies where the texts/titles may give some lead to stories which the viewer can make up or think of by one self. The cats in my work are no accident. They appear organically and just seem to fit in.
