I think it’s a good question.
There’s a pretty good chance that nobody can come up with a really creative answer. If you do come up with a creative answer, you’re going to have a pretty short life of making it. It’s not the one that makes you famous. It’s the one that is remembered and you learn from.
I was in a sketch group during school one day. I walked off stage and I had a few sketches. Every sketch had a different reason. Some were more personal. Some of them were about sports, other sports, art, and others about art. One of the sketches dealt with making a sock puppet mouth. I got stuck.

So I was pretty determined to figure out a way to move it. I didn’t know how to do it, but I really had to look it over to make sure it really looked like what I was envisioning when I was trying to move it.
I had a friend who was a real-estate agent. He saw the sock in a gallery, and he knew how old I lived when I went into art school. He said, “You should
