Mishfit : The Q’s


Wooster: How did you get started
in creating art for the street?

I guess the urge to scribble is too
much to keep confined to a sketchbook or canvas and sooner or later you find
yourself out at night with markers, I started scribbling on the way home from
clubs, just winging it, no real plan. I got so much out of it, that I started
being a bit more organized,  seeking out like minded playmates for nocturnal
antics.

Wooster: What other street artists do you most admire and
why?

There are so many people that just blow me away, there’s not
enough room.

Wooster: What’s your favorite city, neighborhood, or
block, to post and/or to see street art?

Haven’t found it yet, but
when you see stuff out in the countryside or other really unexpected places, it
just makes you grin, I love that .

Wooster: What inspires you
now?

My inspirations change as often as my work does, but at present
its usually really simple things, instincts/emotions, organic v’s mechanical,
anything that makes me laugh. So many mundane things trigger weird little
stories in my head and I think that’s where my images come from.

But
recently the biggest inspiration is hooking up with other artists, just going
out with someone, winging it, swapping pieces half way through, just being
really playful, you get some interesting results and end up with something that
feels really fresh. I like letting the process influence my work.

/>Wooster: What are you currently working on?  Can you give us a sneak
peek?

It’s all about naked girls and mutant creatures at the moment.
Who knows what its gonna be next month, but I have a sneaky suspicion that some
badass robotic chickens may be hatching south side! Its Halloween too, so maybe
some spooky shit.
