"The Canadian publishers, Drawn and Quarterly, called me to see if I would be interested in putting a book together as part of their Petit Livres series. The original offer was for a small book of my work, but I was more interested in trying to create something new. I had stumbled upon online prayer requests accidentally and I was instantly attracted to some of the more odd and strangely worded requests. I always thought they would work well as an illustrated project. Drawn and Quarterly liked the idea, and left me alone with only a deadline." Mixed media.
