Justin, what inspires your artistic side?
The idea of creating art until I open enough doors to create opportunities for others in my community is why I create in the first place.
What's your earliest memory of creating an artistic piece?
I drew a caricature of my 6th grade teacher (while she was teaching) My mother was proud and disappointed at the same time.
What is your go-to beer when you're making art?
Session IPA - it's light enough to keep me on track with my work, but with the same bold flavors of a higher ABV IPA.
