snacki answers some questions.

a few months ago i was perusing flicker and found snacki. my first reaction was a funny one, he uses the phrase snack attack a lot, my old roomates nickname. so i checked out the rest of his stuff. snacki has a great style. his characters look like they were drawn in one stroke, brush or pen never leaving the page. his work with trees has a very simple storybook feel to them. and the buildings, in a way remind me of W.Willis. good stuff.

1. besides the long winter, hot summer, bad transit, highest sales tax anywhere, and a crazy mayor, why chicago?

i thought maybe the pizza, but i’m not sure i’ve figured it out yet.

2. what is it about street art that first drew you to it?

making art and being outside. this i thought, is an awesome combination.

3. what’s for breakfast?
