What’s your ideal work setup?
I’ve got my studio set up pretty much to my liking. I keep my desk clear of clutter, a few select little toys / totems that make me smile, and essential equipment. One of the first things I commissioned after moving to New York was my walnut desk; it’s one of my favorite things I own.
Do you listen to music while working?
Yeah, either music or stand up comedy. In the morning I keep it chill, some Recondite or Christian Loeffler. When I ramp up in the afternoon, lately I’ve been listening to All Them Witches, The Kills, Dead Sara, and Deftones.
Which current designers, artists, thinkers, and makers have the greatest influence on you right now?
I think Ari Weinkle
is one of the greatest digital artists currently working. It’s a crime how little attention his beautiful work gets. I’m also a big fan of David McLeod
, who works with a great deal of grace and subtlety. Clayton Cubitt
is perhaps the greatest person you can follow on social media - his thinking and artwork are both gloriously forceful and challenging.
