"When I make visual art, I pretty much only do it when I’m totally baked. Usually I smoke weed, watch horror movies and I draw for hours. Usually, I get to the point where I’m just really sad, concerned and freaked out and it just becomes a thing. In the same way, I make music. I’ll just disappear and work for 15 hours straight. I’m usually really depressed when I’m making art. But then by the time I’m done with it, I’m super jazzed. Art for me is incredibly cathartic. I use it to make my mind work."
