I want my images to grab you and drag you if not willingly, then kicking and screaming into my picture . I’m inspired and interested in imaginative storytelling pictures that evoke an emotional response. I’m attracted to subject matter from the world of pulp illustration, other worldly realms of fantasy, drama and horror as well as classical illustration and realism. – Dave Lebow
