I’m inspired by a lot of printmakers and painters. People like Mear One, Jenny Schmid and Cleon Peterson are some of my all time favorites. I love character-based work and I especially enjoy character-based work that moves beyond “cool” and has a narrative. I also really enjoy people that are constantly producing work and staying productive. Music really inspires me as well. I listen to bands like The Lawrence Arms, Leftover Crack, Against Me!, Rage Against the Machine and Comeback Kid when I’m in a creative slump…and while I’m creating work too. Sometimes you just hear a phrase that really resonates and it sparks an idea.
