Season: All of them, except the parts in between ( the rainy cold muddy parts).

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?

A2.Final Fantasy (Owen Pallete) at the Troubador.

Q3. What have you said you would never do, but have ended up doing?

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.

Q10. You were slipped a radioactive roofie by an evil scientist and now have mutated, what’s your superpower?
A10.Teleportation!

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.

Castledoor- R.I.P

*this band has unfortunately disbanded….
