What medium(s) did you use to create your piece for "With A Little Help From My Friends"?
Oil on panel; ink on paper.
Where are you from & what about that place influences your art?
Fuck that question.
Did you go to art school? If not, what did you study or not study? Is so, what was your favorite part about it?
I went to school to learn painting and sculpture, and I did.
Would you rather have aliens or monsters be real and why?
Aliens; monsters are real already.
What's your favorite radio station and a few bands you're listening to?
What's something weird and funny that has happened you?
I dropped a paintbrush yesterday.
What was your last adventure & what's your next adventure?
Where are you getting these fucking questions.
Is anyone in your family also artistic? If not, how different are they? If so, what's their art like?
Nope, but I'm told all the time how artistic everyone is on the inside. So they all must be artists too, secretly.
What was your childhood room like?
Well, there was a big fold-out map of Middle Earth, and that's really all you need to know, right?
How can art make the world a better place?
"Art Improves Critical Thinking, Promotes Historical Empathy, and Increases Tolerance"
Burgers, Burritos, or Brownies?
It's hard to resist the urges of sugar.
