How does your economic reality effect your art?
For a while my art was very aggressive but now I am resigned to never having credit or a job where my wages can be garnished. This alienation can be sensed in a lot of work scene the end of college.

Would your work look different if you weren't in debt?:
Yes, and no. I could use thicker material and different types of finishes.
