Shortly after I was asked to design this edition of Zoetrope: All-Story, I experienced the sudden loss of a sibling. Making is the healthiest way I know how to process this sort of thing—whether through art or music or writing, it’s a way to keep going, to find out what’s still in there when you feel there’s nothing left.
With the loss of close family or a friend comes the loss of a corroborator. Someone to confirm past events, to laugh at inside joke . . .
