"I love small things.
All things small.
When I think of small things,
small lone things,
I think intimate.
I think stand-alone.
I think personal.
I think purposeful.
There were so many incredibly beautiful and meaningful entries—I sat with them and just stared for hours. I found it most fascinating that many entries were derived from old-school and analog methods, which seemed true fitting to this edition of we like small things. As a creator who has worked with analog methods, I know how much goes into one piece, let alone a series. This is what makes this theme so special, this is what makes each entry unique. Thank you for trusting me with your art and for opening my heart to such intimate works. I wish I could have given every submission a winning star, because they were all important to me."
