As a child, being alone was one of my worst fears. Therefore I decided to create my work around the idea of childhood fears and thinking from a child point of view, through a child's eyes.
Like Imagine you as a child being engulf by shadows?
When my younger sister moved to her new room, she was afraid of being alone, always insisted that there are things lurking in the shadows, ready to eat her when she closes her eyes. What I used to tell her is that her toys will protect her because their eyes are always open and that they will shied her away from evil and since then she hasn't been scared of being alone.
Just Imagine seeing your worst fears come alive because that would definitely changed my world.
