Mastermind 2013 Honorable Mention: Aholsniffsglue
If you could paint a mural on any building anywhere, which would it be?
It would have to be one that wouldn't get painted over, especially with the stuff going on with walls being expunged. It would definitely be one that would stay forever. People paint walls and the building owners are like, whatever, time for new paint. They take that shit for granted sometimes.
I never see a building and am like, man, I wish I could paint it, but I guess whatever building you're given is the perfect building.
You've worked a lot of 9-to-5's to support yourself. Any favorites?
The reality is, every job I've worked full 40 hours a week I've had zero creativity. I just see it as a paycheck that lets me do what I want to do. My real day starts when I get out of work. I'll probably be up all night long figuring out what I'm gonna get into. The biggest paycheck is the one I like the most.
You've worked with everything from walls to plushies. Any medium you haven't worked with that you want to?
Pretty much anything I can get my hands on, I've wanted to fuck with it. I think anyone can make something with whatever. You don't necessarily have to be trained or schooled in anything. Whatever you can get your hands on, whether it's up to the standards of people who've been doing it for awhile. I'm open to whatever. It's just usually what I work with depends on the space I have available, the funding. Whatever happens, happens. I'm just mad grateful for everything.
