I found that if I don't paint for around a week, I get practically suicidal. It took a long time to figure out why I had these mood swings, and I finally figured out it's because I haven't painted.
I had no interest in high school besides art.
I read that prior to the advent of color TV, most people dreamed in black and white.
I'm interested in visual vocabulary, like Warhol was interested in that vocabulary of advertisements and television and pop culture.
Photorealism's goal is to reproduce a photograph. The best photorealism can't beat a printer, and I have a really nice printer.
The vocabulary I use has to reflect the people I'm trying to communicate with.
I have to assume that everybody interprets a piece of art they're exposed to as if it's already perfect in its wholeness, without knowing any backstory.

I can't work without music.
I have always been interested in having people fall into the image and be aware of their reaction first, and then think about the style.
