"So once I’ve done all this, I can take a top array, copy it, and paste it into a bottom array, and then make 144 at a time, and that instantly becomes what I call a collection of shapes. Then it becomes really tedious because I have to copy each one of these shapes and put it into another document in order to send it to the people who are making cookie cutters, or whatever."

-Allan McCollum
