that’s a good question. i think being in new york has afforded me opportunities to do projects i wouldn’t have been able to do if i lived somewhere else (for example: the work i did with the rubin museum in 2012, talks at local stores and colleges, doing local comics festivals, having work up in galleries, etc.), and i’ve also met a ton of people in the flesh that i’m not sure i would have otherwise. new york is also a constant source of inspiration and it’s pretty meaningful to me to have access to museums and film and culture here. but i think the biggest source of exposure for me has been the internet, especially in that dylan williams of sparkplug books found me via an online review of my nurse nurse minis, which got the ball rolling to where i am now. but i feel like i could be in iceland doing this work with similar results now, exposure-wise. i could also hang out with puffins so maybe that’s something to consider.
