Dépaysant: Falling Asleep While Reading
This series is inspired by that feeling you have when you’re in a new place and experiencing very new things that make you feel foreign, out of sorts and strange (in a good way). It’s exciting to combine my favorite woodland critters with a new cast of magnificent beasts, imagining the ways in which they’d interact if they happened upon each other in the forest of Fontainebleau. I love reading in bed. I usually fall asleep after two pages but once in a great while I make it long enough for my husband to fall asleep while reading his book next to me. One of our cats is always curled up in between my legs. I appreciate the soft light, quiet, stillness, warmth... into sweet dreams.
