"To me, success is about being satisfied with yourself — recognizing something that you take pleasure in doing, and feeling compelled by that."
"I'd like to be remembered for not taking myself too seriously — for not being afraid to show personality and emotion in my work. I guess I just want to be remembered as a person. I’m human! If I can contribute anything to the design world, that's great — but if I can’t, that's okay too. I just want people to know that I'm happy and that I love what I do. That’s crucial for me.”
"I'd love to go back to that time in my childhood — about 4 or 5 — before you really know what's going on, or what life is all about. There's a time in your life when nothing is taken so seriously — you have no hang-ups, there are no inhibitions, and you’re never embarrassed or ashamed of what you’ve done. I wish I could go back to that time — I’d love to draw things and create things and not feel inhibited about what I'm producing."
"When you're an adult, there's so much to worry about. You worry about how people are going to react to your work, and so you dumb down your idea. You’re afraid your concept won’t be understood, and so you don’t pursue it. But as a child, you don’t have those filters — there’s just this openness: the complete freedom of making."
