"Often when you're in the process of realizing an image, it's going somewhere else. If that tangent starts going off in a place that feels more exciting, that's what I go with."
"The thing about making things is that you have a proof. You know you have some proof every day that something has been accomplished, that something’s different. And you know if you can make something as that proof, it’s like a lot of power. I’m very attached to needing a proof of something, that there has been a change...not just to think about it, but to have a physical manifestation of that change."
