Production still from "Trenton Doyle Hancock: 'The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin''" (2013)

"The pencil for me is this symbol—it's like a weapon. 'No regrets' on the eraser, that is just my little pun or joke. But it's also about my life. I do have regrets. But, artistically, I don't."
—Trenton Doyle Hancock
