I think a skilled one might be something you have innate, but once you have this skill, then all of a sudden you’re trying to do something new. But I guess it’s pretty innate, I guess that’s what I have to admit. I’m pretty sure that at some point I was like, I’ll try to do something new with my art because I know I have it in me.
M: How about some of your other skills?
N: I don’t think I’ve ever been good at them, but it’s hard to say because you’re just playing your game and I don’t think I was really good at that.

That’s really why I’m doing it, just for myself and not expecting anybody else to do it the same way – just to see how people actually interact with it and how people think about it or enjoy it or not.
M: So when you first began with it, how much did it start as you were doing other things?
