Esther Tara Rose McCorquodale Artist statement: The comics and illustrations that I create represent overcoming obstacles of everyday life. They all come down to finding faith, determination, hope, and forgiveness in trials. The inspiration that I use comes from my background of religion, Celtic, Norse, and Filipino culture with the myth, history, characters, and creatures that I create and use to build my world. Some of the creatures are like the werewolf from Celtic mythology are said to have been friendly and protect farmers. The other inspiration that is a source for my works is from J.R.R Tolkien's "Lord of the Rings," "The Silmarillion," and "Unfinished tales."
