The image was done to accompany an interview my brother did with Nils as part of his tour to Ireland. Inspired, simply, by Nils's thumb and the four screws inserted into his injured limb. Was listening a lot to Calexico and 'Hush' lyrics in particular resonated: 'The future wraps ‘round like vines' which I thought summed up things perfectly. I guess it's also about how creativity will prevail against any obstacle thrown against it! I'd also like to add that Nils's shows in Ireland were an incredible experience and a joy to savor.
