Q1. Are you superstitious?
A1.No, but I sometimes don’t step on cracks when I’m walking down the street. Not because I think the world will fall apart, I just don’t like to.
Q2. Best show you’ve ever been too?

Q4. Bathroom read?
A4.The ingredients of whatever is sitting next to me because I usually forget to grab something.
Q5. Most Embarrassing Moment?
A5.I had a crush on a bookstore ( still do) and I couldn’t get the door to open so then I got really flustered, pointed at the hours of operation sign and said something like “OH THAT’S WHY!” like the store was closed and I couldn’t get in and that is why the door was so hard to open, and then I walked away. It was all a blur and I realized that the store had been open an hour, I just didn’t pay attention to it and I did all that stuff by embarrassment default. It was really bizarre. I don’t know who saw me, but I’m sure someone did.
Q6. If you were a Transformer, what car/truck would you transform into?
A6.One that transforms into a pizza.
Q7. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?

Q10. You were slipped a radioactive roofie by an evil scientist and now have mutated, what’s your superpower?
Christine Hale is not only a fresh and fun illustrator, she has amazing taste in music. The list of musicians she has made a band poster for would make the coolest of indie kids blush. I have some good cool kid creds. but this girl is at the head of the table. Talented artist with a discerning ear. And she does comics too. And she has an amazing band, The Hoof and The Heel.
I am certifiably jealous!!
Please check out her website for more work but here are a few of my favorites. And I spot an MAOI surveyed band and Nathan Deyoungs favorite animal. Click picture for a jump to their surveys.
