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.
