Ask Michael Sieben to describe his work and he'll tell you it’s soft-core gore that focuses on the fading magic of childhood and its associated loss of innocence. His characters and creatures are unique in that they are both cute and grotesque; their purpose in life is to remind us that even though we have problems we still have reason to smile.
