Sit down with New Jersey-based letterer Taylor Esposito as we discuss what the Lower Your Sights project means to him, his contribution to the anthology, and his thoughts on the unifying power of art.
Q: What does this project mean to you?
Taylor: To get the chance to help such an important cause, is a huge honor. And to be asked to contribute shows how much the team values my contribution to an important story.
Q: What is your contribution to Lower Your Sights? (Short Story, Pinup, Etc.)
Taylor: I lettered the story Maggots, by Alex Moore and Andrew Eschenbach
Q: In addition to supplying food and essential supplies, Voices of Children also provides art therapy to help kids cope and overcome the stress, anxiety, and trauma of living in war conditions. Do you believe art has the power to heal?
Taylor: Absolutely! Art is the catalyst for change in all aspects of life. It certainly has the power to heal.
