"Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do."

João Lemos asked me to write a ballroom battle for his Glass Flowers chapter, resulting in this amazing page. João’s work here goes well beyond what I put into the script.

Josh surprised me with how much freedom he gives his collaborators. He seamlessly embedded the ballroom concept in the adventure’s chain of events.
