"Words are just a way we communicate. Images are a way we communicate. And I couldn't figure out why they had to be in different baskets."
"A lot of my figuring-out-what-to-make time is spent doing some basic counting and measuring and
trying to figure out how big different elements of a piece should be. I could spend days obsessively thinking about three inches, two inches, six inches. It’s very much a mental exercise."
