I would say everything that happens between nine and six is about work. I work mostly by myself. So i sit at my desk and draw and I design. So I am there, and it's me and my art supplies and my computer and my coffee maker, so it's kind of me, me, me. I am such a control freak that I would love to sit down and come up with the perfect formula for creating art. But it doesn't work that way. It is a little bit of a painful realization, because ultimately, it really is, to a very large degree, staring at paper. And I have to trust for kind of crazy moments to happen.
