Artist Statement: 
 
Queen and Courtier is the best example to date of my use of the subconscious to create images. I first drew the foreground image and then started to nod off. Hastily seizing the moment, I scribbled down the background character and promptly fell asleep. I awoke an hour later to find the completed image, rather like a sleeping beggar who wakes up to find a shiny coin in his hand.
