"I think the method is the most interesting thing to me. I think in traditional art making, you come up with a good idea and you hide it and it's like, 'Oh, this is a good idea, I got to really work on this' ...But with a lot of people that do street work, if you have a good idea, you're just like, 'Oh, this is a great idea, I'm putting it out on the street tonight!' And you try to get out there as fast as you can and you know immediately the next day if it was a good idea or not."
