Lachlan Conn is an artist and illustrator.

I believe it was John Cage who once told me, ‘When you start working, everybody is in your studio – the past, your friends, enemies, the art world, and above all, your own ideas – all are there. But as you continue painting, they start to leave, one by one, and you are left completely alone. Then, if you’re lucky, even you leave.’
