Q. What do you do for fun when you’re not working?
A. I’m a big fan of traditional printmaking. I have a homemade screenprinting setup and rolling press that I have good intentions of using. I design a lot of stuff that never quite makes it to the process, but I love the idea of using your hands to make something beautiful.
