Interview with Keven Carter

Here’s #2 in our series of our contributing Artist Interviews. 

1. How long have you been doing art?  I suppose the answer to that is I really don’t know for sure. I know that my parents put crayons and markers in my hands from the time I could close them around something. I know for sure that there was never less than a stack of paper in front of me so I could always have something to draw on. Was it all art? Hell no. It was a way to keep me out of trouble.


2. How did you first get started?  As I mentioned in Q1, I always had crayons, markers, paper and pencils around me to keep me occupied from the time I could close my hands. From there I suppose a lot of encouragement goes a long way too.


Dedicated or Crazy?

We were committed or should we “be committed”?  We had crossed our fingers that the weather reports were “exaggerated” and that the day of The Mooneyes Christmas Party we would only experience a drizzle or two.  Ooops!    Saturday morning John decided to drive the ’36 3-window to the show.  His question as to where the car leaks was answered.  He’s still drying out the carpet!

A few pin-up gals braved the wet weather and were gracious enough to have their photo taken in front of our booth.  Thank you Ladies!

Even though we got soaked, we were pleased that some hardcore attendees came by our booth and bought some ACME items!   Thank you!

Chico & The Mooneyes crew really put on a great show.  It’s one of our favorites.  If you have never been, put it on your calendar for next year.
