Carrot for creativity?
The reason is to push out all those crazy ideas inside of my head so I can survive mentally, It is a must so I won´t kill myself. Stupidity of humanity of mankind is inspirational.
Other Inspiration & values:
Inspired by the french clean lines, especially those by Giraud/Moebius. Robert Crumb with his exceptional crosshatching and free mind, Swedish horror artist Hans Arnold, gender values and equality. Antiheroes,Stupidity of humanity.
Do you do drugs ? NO, I have a surrealistic psychedlic mindset by default.This is a question I get over and over, I tried Marijuana 1999 but it was not for me. Coffee & carrots is all I need.
But I could not care less since its a personal thing if someone likes to do that. I dont judge people by that even if they get hurt by it because I respect the individual choice.
