1. If you had to spend the rest of your life illustrating one book, what would it be? Why?
-Ive always enjoyed fairy tales like Little Red Riding Hood, Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty (not the Disney versions) and I think I’d have a ball illustrating those stories. Simply because those old stories can be interpreted in so many ways and there are already many versions out there.
2. If you could go apprentice with any two artists in the history of the world, who would they be? Why?
-David Mack and Barron Storrey because their work are the two ideals that I want to strive for (Mack for his watercolor and collage, Storrey for his heavy line work and interesting use of text). Also, these two artists are very articulate and thoughtful in their approach to art and I think just having a one on one conversation with them would prove to be an invaluable experience.
3. If you were banned from the art world, but could have any career you wanted that wasn’t in art, what would it be? Why?
-Well I personally see everything as a type of art form but if I couldn’t make comic books I would still want to be involved in writing in some form. Or a food critic, basically I would love to have Samantha Brown’s job (from the travel channel) where you go around the world finding all the great spots to vacation, best places to eat and activities to do.
4. Describe the project you would propose under the following circumstances. Describe the project in detail: what would it be, how would you spend the money, how you schedule the time allotted, and how would the work be presented upon completion?
1.) You have one month and one thousand dollars (all of which must be spent on art expenses)
2.) Six months and ten thousand dollars
-a series of found poetry comics that would be printed and mounted on acrylic, then hung on the wall. it would look like floating art (there are two wooden pieces connected by a strong wire on the back of each comic)
3.) One year and one hundred thousand dollars
