WHAT art-making tool can't you live without?

“My first thought would tell me that starting a project without a pencil is challenging. If I can’t experiment and make inevitable yet non-destructive mistakes, that is un-comfy. Supposing I had the pencil and nothing to erase it, the control over its darkness is like a pre-eraser if viewing eyes are far enough away. The absence of the pencil but the presence of only a black marker somewhat exposes one’s foresight and creative correction abilities.”

WHAT is the best & worst thing about a blind collaboration?

“I spend so much time at home in my drywall box. What excites me about a collaboration project is the opportunity to share in mutual passions and contribute to a space that wholeheartedly accepts that kind of sharing. What I enjoy about its blindness is that there’s minimal bias as to what your contribution is connecting. One can create from their individuality and vision. Perhaps the worst thing about a blind collaboration is that it eludes the intimate moments of building off of a collaborator’s thoughts and feelings.”

WHAT does the word "beastly" bring to your mind?

“So many thoughts come to mind when I hear the term beastly. It’s a creature lurking in the shadow, preying on the vulnerable. It’s a hellish knuckle-dragging being hauling stone. It’s a trait so well paired with the unusual, the unsettling, or dangerously powerful. Maybe that’s a mythical giant that slinks around the bottom of the ocean or a cryptid lost in the forest. To me, the beast shapeshifts, cunningly embodies my fears, and haunts my dreams. Beastly is also the name of the rodent-like secondary antagonist in the late-80s animated series Care Bears.”
