I like visuals. I guess this is obvious after I went a little crazy making all of those Character Aesthetics cubes right before Stepsisters came out, but I really like visuals! Maybe it’s the younger me that liked to draw and dreamed of one day being a fashion designer or a professional photographer or maybe even an interior designer (none of which I actually became, sadly, though I did dally in radio for a few years) – but visuals are my guilty pleasure. I buy cookbooks and home design magazines just to look at the pictures – and try out the recipes, of course, but mostly to look at the pictures! So I guess it’s pretty safe to say that I’m a glutton for this stuff. And I’m not ashamed.

Reading is fun because it nourishes our imagination. We go on adventures, feel feelings, and see amazing visuals in our heads. Sometimes I like to take those visuals out of my noggin and look at them in the real world – so, in the same vein as those Character Aesthetics collages I put together a while back, here are a few collages focusing more on the Aesthetics of Locations… along with some added commentary, insight, style notes, and trivia bits to help bring the world of “Deceived” to life. I’m interested to see how close the pictures in your heads match up with the pictures in mine! -SRV
