When you’re not busy with work, what do you do in your free time? Read, go to gigs, watch movies-- which all STILL count as work in a weird sort of way.
Where do you find inspiration for your creations? Everything from real events to other works of art. Most of my characters are inspired by people I either find interesting or hate, though.
Most inspiring statement/moment (heard/said/read)? something i now base my every decision on: "I wish Quark Henares would refrain from selling out again, because if he doesn't he can be one of the important ones." - Alexis Tioseco
