Duration: Going on three years.
Education: BA from University of California, Santa Barbara and MFA from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design—where I learned the conceptual approach and business of illustration.
Staff: Me and JB (Joanie Bernstein Art Rep, my agent).
Environment: My flat.
Cultural Influences: I draw from Jewish and Mexican cultures, African masks and Japanese woodblocks. Guadalajaran and Japanese textiles. The patterns, routines and rhythms of city life interactions. Trepidation toward crowds and a minor bout of claustrophobia and immaturity. Dr. Strangelove, Tom Robbins, Kurt Vonnegut, Maurice Sendak and Red Grooms.
Philosophy: To stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. The view is incredible.
