Brian Dodd is an autistic adult who has always loved drawing creatures of his imagination. Encouraged by his friends, Jay and Sherry Chatfield, who own the Copper Cactus in Ingram, Texas, Brian began to put the ideas from his drawings on canvas in 2009.
I started making arts and crafts in elementary school. Some projects were easier than others. I like making cards because they are easier and less messy. I can use different mediums. This variety of mediums allows me to use things are less restrictive.
The art in my head is like a fragmented dream of pages-worn @ the edges, dog eared, bookmarked, coffee stained, ripped, scribbled and highlighted in many colorful ways- but the librarian doesn’t mind cuz there is no fine for the comforts of mind.
