Lead Me Not Into Temptation - Book cover Illustration artwork illustrator Duncan Long

Dr. Shelley Carson has been researching creativity for some years now, and we often exchange emails. She recently asked me to write a small comment on how some of my artwork had influenced me on a personal level — and this is the result.

The artwork is the illustration I created for Dale Allan’s novel Lead Me Not Into Temptation. After creating the illustration, it had a rather profound influence over me.

Hopefully the short article will prove interesting to others rather than being a simple exercise in artistic narcissism.
