  • ” You can’t just stick with one thing. You have to let your natural style come through, and paint what you naturally like to paint.”
    “Why are you so into Southwestern patterns?”
    ” I just like them. I don’t know. I would like to make a rug. I don’t think they are that hard to make. I have seen them do it.

  • “To me, the job of the artist is to provide a useful and intelligent vocabulary for the world to be able to articulate feelings they experience everyday, and otherwise wouldn’t have the means to express in a meaningful and useful way.” Hipster hop star Spank Rock interviews Mos Def and maybe learned something about being a relevant artist (via)
