"The contemporary mercenary armed with an imaginative spirit fuelling his army with his own humane weapons to belief. Conor Mccreedy the South African born pioneer is cradling an empire that's always been within his reach. Finding love in an instance of creation. As the blue-eyed magnifier precisely builds his team of creative revolutionaries and fans, the colour blue may never mean the same again. The evocative glint in his eyes all submit to the allure and immensity."
