George Shipperley: "Sono ispirato dalla poesia della natura, in particolare degli alberi e di come si relazionano tra loro. La mia strategia è sviluppare una buona armonia dei colori con un certo grado di dettaglio. Dare l'intera storia non è così interessante come permettere allo spettatore di usare la propria immaginazione".
