Music was always one of my passions so merging visual language with the music is quiet inspirational and natural to me. I can say that music was the main inspiration in making the visuals, but not only music, there is a lot of inspiration in freedom of expressing my own stories of how I feel and understand the universe.

I got ideas from the universe and all of its miracles. It was a challenge to make the concept of the visuals based on a title, but that part was really interesting for me, it’s like getting a new story or a book for illustrating. Also, there was no revisions after artwork was finalized.
