When asked in a recent interview, "What are some of the things that you do to keep yourself creative?" Here was his interesting response:

"I STOP drawing!


"Sometimes I get into this rut where I have to draw draw draw..non stop. The act of drawing becomes very easy, but coming up with new ideas becomes very difficult for me.

"I tend to just force myself to get out, go on a bike ride, get off for the weekend, do something totally different. and it's HARD. I'm always feeling that urge to pick up a sketchbook and draw, but, when I get like that, I know that whatever i draw will be a doodle that I've done before, and won't be very creative.

"A dinner with friends, a good movie, a family moment...things that don't relate to art really boost my creativity!"
