"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."
"Sometimes, I like to choose situations that have multiple readings, but oftentimes there are more readings than I even had thought of. Things happen that I didn’t anticipate in terms of potential narrative relationships, strands of stories, character motivations."
