You can see a little Q&A with me here - it's in this week's CVILLE (a local alt weekly). I name check Apollinaire, Giotto and surfing. Plus Ginger and Violet are in it (and we were drawing birthday cards for Annie!). Here's a chunk:
What is your first artistic memory from childhood?
Both my parents were artists and both my grandmothers were artists, and so my first artistic memories involve my family. I remember drawing at the kitchen table with my dad and my brother, and my dad is showing us how to draw cartoons and other little things. I also really remember my grandmother’s basement. My dad’s mom painted with oil paints, and so her basement smelled like turpentine and linseed oil.
