Tools of Choice

(Music playing.) This would be one of my first favorite, first and foremost favorite tools, is getting something down on paper in whatever manner I can. Even if they are thoughts, scribbles, ideas, just kind of conjectures, things off the top of my head, I want to get those notes down as quickly as possible. I am not one to jump straight into Illustrator and Photoshop.

I sort of get there by matter of process. I'll tend to do that once in a while, but I find that if that's my first route, unless I am just creating basic shapes and elements that need to be clearly defined or highly stylized. I will go there, but that's usually my second stage and then I'll go into like a combination of Illustrator and Photoshop. I usually have them open at the same time so I can kind of like create elements and move them back and forth.

Once I get enough elements created in Illustrator that most likely most times would be inspired by something that I kind of like hand drew, just to get a jump on things. Image recording wise, I've been through a series of cameras. The larger format mini DVs to the smaller format, hand-held like consumer grade mini DVs. I seem to be like progressively downscaling because I like the sort of like low fineness of just point-and- shoot and the accessibility of it as well.

I'm constantly importing photos from the iPhone, because everyday I've got that thing. I am shooting as many pictures as I am making phone calls with that thing. So I start to import like different elements in. And I know that they are just temporary elements but they really help me start to build kind of like what I am going for. At the end of it all my most important tools are my-- I like to think of my brain as the factory and I like to think of my eyes and my hands as the tools.
