  • “If your budget is low, make your aesthetic work with it. Don’t let it hold your aesthetic back.”
  • “I really firmly believe that art and commerce need each other.”
  • “My feeling has always been, if I can continue to produce the work for myself that I want to do for companies – that there will be much less compromise when it comes to doing commercial work.”
  • “The cool thing about street art is you don’t get attached to it – which totally prepped me for the commercial art world.”
  • “There’s so many times where you go, ‘OK, should I be spending more time on my art or on my business?’ And I’ve found that I’m not happy doing either exclusively – that its all important.”
