In 2002, Padam met the poet Garry Thomas Morse. Wishing to sketch his countenance for a new project, Padam at first suggested Ganymede as a theme. Garry countered traditional Apollonian cupbearing notions with a West Coast adaptation of the bird Poesy and suggested that a raven be depicted feeding upon the poet's mind. Padam responded with a sketch of Garry's idea which he developed into a working rendering that finalized as a stained glass triptych, completed in 2004.

Garry also featured a highly amusing caricature of Padam in his novella Death in Vancouver.
