Life Update
Last we spoke, you just finished up school (right?) How goes the job hunt? Do you miss school yet?
How has life changed since then as an artist? or…how is the really real world of art?
Piper’s Paintings
Not that we are counting, but what number Daily Paint are you up to now? Have you had any major down time?
You do so many of these paintings. Are you ever afraid of running out of ideas?
What’s your method for coming up with and finalizing the puns?
My favorite Paintings are the ones that combine cute creatures and food. Do you have a favorite foodie art piece?
Daily Paintings Art Book + Kickstarter
Are there any pieces that are just in the book?
Are there any other goodies in the book, other than the paintings?

Random Stuff

Social Media graces. You send out a lot of thank yous. How important is it to be an extra nice guy on the internet in an age of jerks?
Speaking of Social Media, you started an instagram account this year and discovered the pain of being everywhere at once. You mentioned you might try Hootsuite Social Media Manager. Have you, and how is it working for you?
Someone recently tatooed their body with your artwork. How do you sleep at night knowing your artwork is hugging someones skin right now?
