“Years ago, I created a lot of zombies, especially portraits. I guess I kind of felt like that going to school and where I was in my life at the time. Then, the focus became more about aliens and brain slugs—outside controlling forces, which was also where I was during that time.” – Jacqueline Gallagher (The Manifold)
