Birthday Boy

Creative Intention

Birthday Boy is a comedic approach to a serious idea.

We are all strange in our own way, and somehow that is not celebrated quite often enough. Where society chooses the style status quo, the appropriate response to most situations, and generally regards difference as an unacceptable oddity; it is always important to see strange as a beautiful thing, and to celebrate it at all costs, even if you end up alone at your own party.

Life is not about trying to be the same or even trying to fit in. It is not about being accepted by everyone or anyone, but it does matter that you accept yourself for who you are, no matter how hard that can be at times.

Birthday Boy is a celebration of life, because in the immortal words of the Cheshire Cat “We’re all mad here”.

I have been stopping time for over eight years now, while placing my thoughts upon the blank page for even longer. For me, art is about the story, the message, and although the tales I tell are sometimes in complete juxtaposition with one another, they are all a part of the novel that is "I".
