There are two purposes to the Story Time series: The first one is to share my experiences from visiting to museums and art exhibits or sitting in on panels.
The second is analyzing various methods of storytelling, because I like that we can express our own stories and feelings in so many ways. I pick any story or character that currently interests me and talk about them. It can be a short story, a novel, video game, TV show, movie or even pictures. No matter how an artist chooses to express themselves, there’s a story behind their pieces.
