What do you find to be the most enjoyable part of putting these scenes together?
“Well it’s all enjoyable, from getting the idea, or seeing something that’s freshly in season at the farmer’s market – that would make a good – backdrop, to actually setting it up in my studio while I’m rocking out to music. Though the set-ups can be tricky. The figures aren’t really built to stand on their own. So getting them arranged without being obvious to the camera can take a surprising amount of time. But with all that said, it can be really cool to hear how people react to the images, especially when they’re paired with a clever/funny caption.”
