I get up everyday and I get to make art. And I don’t take that for granted.
It can be really scary to make something and put it out there.
Just before we pulled the plug, we decided to join a long procession of young kids with crazy ideas who were told by some authority that they couldn't do what they wanted. We said fuck it. We'll do it anyway.
Do it anyway.
Be irrational, ridiculous and nonsensical.
Win, even when no one gives you a chance.
See opportunity where others see obstacles.
The theme of this month is failure and that's slightly problematic because I haven't failed in anything in more than 15 years.

It's selfish to hide.
When you do collaborate, show recognition and gratitude.

Clearly, I'm not a shy person but, when it comes to networking, honestly I could like lay in bed and agonize over it. I don't want to do it. It feels really icky to me.

"How can we make the whole better for both of us?" It just has a different connotation.
Mutual respect. No secrets. Don’t steal other people’s shit.
We’re not trying to please everybody. Sometimes doing good work means polarising the audience.

A revolution is the fight between the past and the future.

A sketch is like a question mark: "What do you think?" It almost doesn't matter what they think; it matters that you asked.
Compassion is not compassion without action.
We're all entrepreneurs now.
Rule 1: The hierarchy is dead.
When you talk about a lack of <insert minority> into <insert any industry>, what you're also saying is that you're not willing to support the people who are actually there.
Food is very important. It is health but also prevention.
In a Shinto framework, the idea that objects have a spirit, have a soul, have a character is not that unusual. So therefore there is nothing strange about the robot you create having a degree of personality.
