Seven Snakes - Inspiration One
One of my artistic heroes, Guy Maddin, talks about having a space to create. He fills this space with pictures that inspire him to want to tell stories. I'm going to do that a little bit here at the blog.
This shot from Once Upon a Time In The West inspires me. So many of the images from this movie burned themselves into my brain, and from those borrowed visuals some how SEVEN SNAKES slowly percolated in my mind.
