What has inspired you recently?
I've been looking at vintage Indian match box designs and Swiss graphic design a lot lately.
Why did you choose to pair with Doctors Without Borders with your print?
I chose to pair my print with Doctors Without Borders. I remember watching the documentary Living in Emergency a few years ago, and was really touched by the compelling story of the people and the organization.
How have you seen art transform the world around you?
Tough question. It could be a little piece of art my friend gives me as a present and makes my day, to a piece of art that is so impactful that it makes people aware of important social issues. I do like the idea that art is everywhere nowadays and for everybody.
If you could pick one artist to mentor you, who would it be?
Hmm...too many. I think that Chip Kidd would be pretty cool to hang around with.
