Todd's impressive range as an artist encompasses large and small moments, dazzling colour and limited palette, laughter and fear, trompe l'oeil specificity and delicate gauzy impressionistic effects.
Mood, and its evocation, are at the heart of what he does. "When you're painting dragons, you pretty much do have to use everything you know about reptiles and cats and birds and skin and light and volume. It all comes into play.
A lot of artists sculpt their dragons and photograph them before they paint them. If I had enough time to do it I think it would be fun to take that approach. At the very least you have to be aware of the volumes in your head, think three-dimensionally."
