Ryan's Notes on "Arcana (2011)":
I've always been a sucker for magic and fantasy. Some of my earliest renders attempt to capture this. For whatever reason it had been a quite a long time since I've tried anything "magical". After reading "The Chronicles of Narnia" to my 7-year old son Ian, doing a little CRPG gaming, and purchasing a new version of Lightwave the time seemed right to dust off my spellbook in Winter 2011.

For the record: The figure in the center of the "magic" was Ian's idea.
