F A Q
What do you use to make your pictures?
Traditional mediums. Pencils and brushes. Strathmore sketch pads (the ones with the big metal rings) are my favorite. Nothing fancy. I use acrylics for all my paintings. I've tried just about every kind out there. If you closed your eyes and grabbed a tube off my desk, it'd most likely be Golden.
What’s with the hermit crabs?
Sendak had the Wild Things. Suess had his Whos.
Where do you get your ideas?
