"I was contacted by an illustrator friend that I went to school with, Chris Huth, to take part in a group show titled Black and White and Read All Over. The theme of the show was to illustrate a scene from a favorite book. I automatically thought of Orwell's Animal Farm. This scene is when the men attack Animal Farm and plant explosives in the windmill, blowing it up. I actually like 1984 more, but I was in the mood to draw some animals."
