“He taught me how to draw. He showed me how to get it down, from here… where it’s bright and amazing and to – bam! … here on the paper. He taught me that your hand wicks visions out of your head onto the paper. That’s why it’s called ‘drawing’. And it works the other way too. The brush sucks up the colours, makes your hands tingle…”

-Sarah Totton – Jimmy Away to me (in Tesseracts Nine. Edge, Calgary, 2005)
