Do you watch a lot of TV?
Well, what’s “a lot”? I watched a fair amount when I was a kid, but I don’t think I watch as much now, who has the time? I’ll watch anything Joss Whedon puts out there (past treats included Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, and Firefly). This probably makes me a geek. Right now I’m watching American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, The Daily Show & Colbert Report hour of comic power, Bored to Death, and Doctor Who.
How long does it take you do to a painting?
Kind of impossible to answer. I keep trying to keep track and log the hours and then I forget. The longest I think I’ve ever worked on something was 3 months, and the quickest I’ve ever painted something was one week — but I stayed up till about 3am all week, so it’s kinda unclear if that was really “quick” after all. (And it was a teensy tiny painting, about 5 x 7 inches.)
