Q: How did you first discover your artistic abilities?
A: In college, I was a member of the Gallatin coloring club. We colored and ate baked goods. One time we decided to put together our own coloring book, and I drew a picture of a dinosaur to submit. Then I kept drawing pictures of dinosaurs and coloring them. Eventually I started drawing other animals. This week I drew my first caveman, and it went okay.
Q: Describe your artistic style.
A: Simple and inaccurate. I have a hard time picturing what things actually look like, so I generally just guess. I also try to make things look cute.
Q: When were you last on a boat?
A: Coming home from Ikea.
